Cinnamon Walnut Steel Cut Oats

Cinnamon Walnut Steel Cut Oats

Steel cut oats have a delicious nutty flavor and a hearty texture. They are high in fiber and a good source of protein to help minimize spikes in blood sugar and leave you feeling satisfied and fuller longer.


  • 3/4 cup water
  • small pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 Tablespoon Toasted Walnut pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Makes 1


  1. 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.
  2. Simmer, covered for 20-25 minutes until water is absorbed and oats are tender.
  3. Serve topped with walnuts, cinnamon and almond milk.

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.
