Overnight Steel Cut Oats

Awhile ago I purchased a small bag of steel cut groats at our local Amish bulk foods store. I had never tried these, but was intrigued. I put off making them because I really wasn’t sure how. Sunday night I finally bit the bullet and did a little research online as to how to prepare them.

It was so easy! I loved how little time it actually took, and now I have a big bowl of oats in the refrigerator that should last me the whole week!

Overnight Steel Cut Groats

In a large sauce pan, mix 1 1/2 cups steel cut groats

With 6 cups water. Boil for 1 minute100_1423

 Cover and let sit at room temperature in the sauce pan overnight…they will absorb a lot of the water overnight!

In the morning, boil again for 10 minutes, or until the are thick and creamy (but still have a little “crunch” in the middle). I did have to make sure I watched these carefully, because they were so thick that they almost burned when I just lef them to boil.

Scoop a bowlful up, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!!! (1/2 of a Nectarine, Maple Syrup, a little bit of Maple Brown Sugar Granola)

I put the rest into a large tupperware bowl and just scoop out what I want each day and throw it into the microwave.

I can’t believe I was “affraid” of this stuff! It was so easy and makes breakfast so easy! Try it!!

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!
