Oatmeal 9 Ways

Lately it’s been a challenge to get my daughter to eat something for breakfast that isn’t completely loaded with sugar or sustenance, so this Oatmeal 9 Ways  should help spur some interest.  While fruit by itself is great, it’s not enough to sustain a day of running around.  In fact, this goes further then just feeding my daughter it’s also for myself.  I do a really poor job of eating in the mornings so with this Oatmeal 9 Ways I wanted to have plenty of options for myself as well as give you a few ideas to marinate on.

It all starts with the oatmeal so instead of traditional rolled oats, which are great, I wanted something a little grainier and meatier so I went with Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats.  In short they’re the best and I think they even won an award in 2009 for the best steel cut oats, so there ya have it!  To cook you simply boil water and then mix in the oats, turn down the heat and occasionally stir for 20 to 25 minutes.  From there, salt it and butter it and you’re good!  If you want to make overnight oats simply put a lid on the pot right after they are done cooking, no need to salt and butter, and leave it on the stove until the morning.  Once you wake up turn the heat up and add in the salt and butter.

Believe it or not I actually had a few more I wanted to fit in there but the image size wouldn’t allow to sneak more in.  The 1 that didn’t make the cut, but was still fabulous was almond butter, sliced bananas and coconut shreds.  If you can’t find 1 out of these Oatmeal 9 Ways
