I love steel cut oats because they have a nuttier, earthier flavor than rolled oats.  They're delicious on their own with nothing more than a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon, but this recipe brings them to a whole new level! With amazing ingredients, this healthy, filling, protein packed breakfast is a great source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants, providing several health benefits, including improving digestion and heart health, regulating blood sugar and lowering inflammation!


  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 3 cups water or unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice), or a mix of both
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. ground Flaxseeds
  • 1 tbsp. Hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp. Chia seeds
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla
  • 3 tbsp. raw honey
  • ¼ cup chopped Walnuts
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut chips
  • 1 cup strawberries, blueberries and raspberries


  • Pour oats, salt and water and or milk into saucepan and bring to boil over high heat.
  • Once water is boiling, reduce the heat to low simmer.  Cover and cook for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping bottom of pan.
  • Cook until oats are tender and as creamy as you like it.
  • Pour oats into bowl, add a little milk if you want it creamier,  finally add desired toppings above.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
  • You can also let the oats cool and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.  
  • The oats will thicken in the fridge; stir a little milk or water into them when reheating to loosen.
