Steel Cut Oats Breakfast

Ingredients:

1 cup steel cut oats, rinsed and soaked over night (for gluten-free make sure the oats are certified gluten-free)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Directions:

Pour oats and soak water (please note that oats are the only grain that you actually cook in the soak water as oat water has healing properties for the gut) into a medium pot over medium-high heat. If water does not cover oats, add more water so oats are just covered. Bring oats to boil and then reduce heat and simmer to desired consistency, about 10-15 min. Remove from heat, stir in remaining ingredients and serve.

Serves 3-4

*Feel free to use any variation of fruit, nuts and seeds or add unsweetened shredded coconut if desired. Can also add a milk of your choice (i.e. coconut, almond, rice, soy, goat, cow) orΒ  kefir or yogurt for added creaminess.
