When you wake up with a sweet tooth, but need something easy, creamy, hearty and filling!
3/4 cups steel cut oats (I used Whole Food’s 365 Everyday Value Organic Steel Cut Oats)
3 cups unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Maple Syrup)
Bring the milk to a boil in a medium saucepan
Stir in the oatmeal and reduce the heat to medium-low.
Simmer uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until oats are soft. Stir often while cooking.
After oats are finished cooking, remove from heat and stir in maple syrup.
Serve and enjoy!
Tips and Tricks:
An optional serving tip: top with a tiny bit more maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon.
Reduce the amount of maple syrup if you don’t want it quite as sweet.
Replace the milk with water. The results won’t quite be as creamy, but it will cut down the calorie content slightly.
