Kind of like roasted chicken, oatmeal is something a lot of people don't enjoy because they've never learned how to prepare it properly. In my experience, gently toasting the oats in olive oil prior to making the oatmeal makes a huge difference. What you put on top, well, that's up to you!
- 1 cup steel-cut oats
- 2 cup milk (2% fat)
- 2 cup water
- 1 tsp olive oil
- ½ cup, sliced banana
- In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. After oil is heated, add oats to pan and gently toast for 1-2 minutes.
- Add 1-3/4 cups milk and 2 cups water to saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 25-30 minutes without stirring.
- Add in remaining milk and cinnamon.
- Serve topped with bananas or other fruits and nuts of your choice!
