Steel Cut Oats with Coconut Milk & Cinnamon

Submitted by: AUDMKAMP

Introduction

If you're tired of regular oatmeal mush, give steel cut oats a try. So good for you & so economical too! My grocery store has them in bulk bins for about 80 cents per pound. The coconut milk in this recipe is about 1.80 per can, but just one make this recipe 6 times over. That comes to less than 20 cents per day for breakfast!

Cook steel cut oats (groats) at a ratio of 1/4 c dry oats to 1 cup water. I add some coconut milk to make it a little creamy. Coconut is one of the healthiest fats, so don't be afraid of the fat content! This kind is oh so GOOD for you!

I make up enough for a week at once & portion out into 7 of those 2-cup size round Ziplock brand plastic bowls with screw-on lids. I just grab one in the morning & take it with me to work.
90 seconds in the microwave & breakfast is ready!

Ingredients

    Coconut Milk - 2 oz (1/8 cup)
    1.75 C Steel Cut Oats (sometimes called Groats)
    7 cups water
    7 T Cinnamon

Directions

Add oats, water & coconut milk to large pot. Heat to boiling then simmer about 20 minutes, or until desired consistency/tenderness.

Portion out into 7 bowls for the week & top each with 1 T cinnamon before putting on lids & putting in the fridge. Breakfast is done for the week!

Change it up by adding some chopped up fresh or frozen fruit, or even craisins.

Tip: One can of full-fat coconut milk is about 13.5 oz, so at just 2 oz for this recipe for 7 servings, one can goes a LONG way. I pour the extra out into ice cube trays - putting 1 oz in each cube & freeze. Once frozen, pop the cubes out into a freezer bag. Then you just grab 2 each week & go for about the next month!
I wouldn't recommend buying light coconut milk. It is just watered down to cut down the calories (who wants to pay for water?!?). Use the full fat stuff & you just use a much smaller amount each time.
