Sometimes (especially around this time of year) the school semester starts to pick up and things get a little bit hectic. It seems that I have weeks where I have more meetings than hours of sleep and meals can be a bit of a rush. This is particularly challenging when you are choosing not to eat packaged foods. However, that is not to say it can't be done; a little creativity is just required!
Enter: steel cut oats. Steel cut oats are an easy fix and when prepared just right, can be stored and enjoyed for the week. This recipe is modified from a recipe that Oly, our local oat supplier from the farmer's market, provided us with! Just when you didn't think your mornings could slow down, this recipe will allow you to enjoy a home cooked breakfast on even the busiest of days.
2 cups of steel cut oats
2 tablespoons of milk or yogurt
2 cups of milk or apple juice
Raisins (or other dried fruit or an apple!)
