Breakfast, it can be a challenge. There are usually time constraints involved and sometimes rushing around can lead us to grab a less than healthy choice for the first meal of the day. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact this breakfast of Steel-Cut Oats with Seasonal Fruit is so quick and easy it could be considered a fast food!
Recipe brought to you in partnership with Pacific Foods!
Steel-cut oats, also known as Irish or Scottish oats, are made when the whole groat is cut into several pieces, rather than rolled. Steel-cut oats look almost like barley and this cut gives the oats a bit more texture, what I call a hearty ‘bite’. For this recipe you can certainly cook your own steel cut oats, but I am going to share something with you that will make your morning rush a lot more leisurely… ready made steel-cut oats from Pacific Foods!
Ready Made, All You Have To Do Is Warm It Up!
Unlike most convenience foods, this steel-cut oatmeal is certified organic and non GMO. And the oats come in five flavors: Steel Cut Unsweetened, Lightly Sweetened, Apple and Cinnamon, Maple and Brown Sugar, and Flax and Chia Power.
After warming oats you simply top with your favorite seasonal fruit and nuts. Because it’s fall I chose fresh figs, pomegranate seeds, pepitas, chopped dates, red pears and blueberries. A beautiful, healthy bowl of goodness in minutes! (To see how to easily seed a pomegranate click!)
