Those Steel Cut Oats Tho!

I had to get out of bed.  My sleep schedule goes into a weird cycle when I am here because Stephen works 2nd shift.  He works from 3 to midnight and doesn't go to sleep until around 2:30 am, waking up at 10:30 am.  So when I am here, I wake up around 8, take a nap around 3:30 to 5, then stay up until he goes to bed.  It's funny.

I wanted to get up and make some oats for us while he was sleeping.  I make mine with vanilla almond milk because I love my oatmeal sweet.  I use Simple Truth Vanilla Almond Milk.  I also use the Quaker brand of steel cut oats.  Today I am making 4 servings so we have left over for dessert tonight.  It calls for 4 cups of almond milk and one cup of oats.  You need to bring the milk up to a boil first.

Once the milk comes to a boil, lower the heat and add in the oats.

This is one cup of oats to 4 cups of almond milk (4 servings).

After you add the oats, just stir occasionally for the first 5-10 minutes.  I start stirring more frequently after that because I love the creamy texture it gives.  Once the milk has cooked down, it's pretty much done.  Here is the finished product.  I love fresh raspberries on mine.

It's delicious and the oat grains are a little toothy, but so yummy!

Okay, that's all for this morning.  I really love my new oatmeal!

I do something similar with black rice and coconut milk. Very tasty.

Looks good. I hardly ever eat oatmeal. Maybe I should eat it more often. : )
