- 3/4 cup water

- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
- 1 Tablespoon Toasted Walnut pieces
- 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a small pot over medium-high heat bring water to a gentle boil. Add salt and oats. Cover and reduce heat to low, to maintain a gentle simmer.

Tips: Don't have the time to cook steel cut oats every morning? Try preparing a double or quadruple batch over the weekend. Store in pre-portioned glass jars with lids or sealed glass storage containers. On a busy morning pull one out of the fridge, reheat in the microwave and add pre-portioned amount of walnuts, cinnamon and almond milk for a delicious and filling quick-fix breakfast.
Note: Steel cut oats are oats that have not been rolled flat into flakes. The intact oats are high in fiber and a good source of protein and can be found on the oatmeal or natural foods aisle of your grocery store.
