Steel Cut Oat Breakfast

While I'm on the subject of oats, I might as well post the breakfast I eat almost every morning. I had to pat myself on the back a while back when I read that Oprah herself ate almost the very same breakfast sometimes.

If you've never had steel cut oats, let me tell you that they are vastly superior to rolled oats. To cook steel cut oats, simply measure one cup oats to three cups water and cook on low for about 20 minutes or until tender (no lid on pan).

I use about 1 cup of these cooked oats (you'll have approximately three) to a bowl and then add:

1/8 cup ground flax
1/2 cup milk or soy milk
1 cup thawed mixed berries
1-2 tsp brown sugar

This is excellent nutrition and very yummy!
