As I’m adjusting to this chilly weather (which I’m loving!) I decide to warm up the kitchen this morning with some oatmeal and Nancy Wilson! This oatmeal isn’t just any oatmeal. It’s baked steel cut oats! It’s a swingin’ twist on regular stovetop oatmeal. I prefer steel cut oats just because they are a bit healthier for you than the instant rolled oats. This breakfast is super healthy, satisfying, and delicious! Just like Nancy Wilson is for the soul:
What you need:
- 1 Cup steel cut oats (the 5 minute cooking kind- see picture below)
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup cranberries
- 3 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup apple sauce
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch salt
- 2 bananas sliced
- 2 tbsp honey
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Stir together oats, seeds, and cranberries. Whisk together milk, egg, apple sauce, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Stir oats into wet ingredients. Pour into a casserole dish (or in my case I just baked it in a skillet). Place sliced bananas on top, drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes, do a taste test, and check to see if it’s done. Once tender to the bite and golden, remove from oven and serve with more honey, cinnamon, or whatever you like. You can serve it just like this or put it in a bowl and add more milk.
You can improvise:
- To make this healthy breakfast a little more sweet, top with homemade whipped cream.
- Try adding different nuts or berries.
- Use a different type of milk.
I hope you all have a nice and easy morning!
