Oatmeal 5 ways

Phases (see below) | Makes 4 to 8 servings | Prep time: 2 minutes | Total time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 4 cups water

Directions

  1. Combine the oats and water in a large saucepan. Boil 1 minute. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and let it stand overnight at room temperature.
  2. In the morning, remove the lid and bring the oats to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until the oats are creamy yet still a little bit chewy, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Cooked oats will keep in the fridge for a week. You can just spoon out a serving (1 cup for Phase 1  or 1/2 cup for Phase 3), add a little water and reheat in the microwave for a minute or two. Or, you can make a huge batch and freeze single servings.
  4. Then, add your favorite mix-ins (per 1 cup of oatmeal):

 

Peach-Ginger Oatmeal

Phase 1

Add 1/2 cup chopped peaches, 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla.

Phase Three add-in: 1/4 cup chopped almonds in addition.

 

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Phase 1

Stir in 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and stevia to taste.

 

Blueberry-Coconut Oatmeal

Phase 3

Drizzle in 2 tablespoons of coconut milk, then sprinkle with 1/2 cup fresh blueberries and 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut.

Raspberry-Hazelnut Oatmeal

Phase 3

Add 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, then top with 1/2 cup raspberries.

Cherry-Almond Butter Swirl Oatmeal

Phase 3

Swirl in 2 tablespoons almond butter and top with 1/2 cup dark-red cherries (frozen is fine).
