For a snack, I made two quick little oat cookies out of pre-soaked steel-cut oats, apple sauce, cinnamon, vanilla, and ground flax seed.
- Just put them on a baking sheet (so no oil!) in a pan on the stove for about 15 mins (:
I’ve recently made the switch from rolled/quick oats to steel cut oats, and I’m wondering what took me so long because these taste great and they’re really nutritious!
This morning’s oats were topped with some apples, walnuts, and nutmeg
Rather than the whole saucepan and stove thing, I opted to put a few cups of oats in the rice cooker and forget about them for an hour or so. They came out perfect! And so easy, too, because I had initially been hesitant about steel cut oats because of the long cooking time. But, it’s absolutely worth it – the taste and texture is surprisingly different from the oats I’m used to, and they’re really filling!
Today I want to share the absolute best, most tastiest oatmeal recipe I know of! It’s so delicious I eat it for breakfast as often as I can…or sometimes for lunch =)
The exact proportions of the ingredients vary every day depending on what I’m in the mood for, but to give you an idea, I usually throw in:
…and I heat that all up, then when it’s done I put walnuts and hemp seeds on top!
