Organic Steel Cut Oatmeal with Flax

During the weekdays I like to keep things simple for breakfast. So for at least 2-3 days a week my husband I enjoy this simple dish for breakfast. I usually make it on Sunday evenings and then I’m all set for the week! This is not only a very nutritious but also a very filling breakfast dish. 

Ingredients

  • Steel Cut Organic Oatmeal : ½ cup
  • Ground flax seed : 2 tablespoon
  • Organic 1% milk : ½ cup
  • Organic raw granulated brown sugar : 3 teaspoons
  • Chopped walnuts : 1/3 cup
  • Organic raisins & dried cranberries : 1/8 cup

 Directions

  • Take 2 cups of water in a pan and heat it till it boils.
  • Then add the ½ cup of oatmeal, and lower the heat to medium. Keep it partially covered so it doesn’t bubble over, for 10 minutes.
  • Stir it once or twice so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  • Then add the flax, sugar and milk.
  • Cook it for another 5 minutes.
  • If it seems too thick you can add another 1/3½ cup water and cook for a minute so that the water doesn’t separate.
  • Then remove from the heat.
  • Add the walnuts and raisins and cranberries. Mix well.
  • This refrigerates really well. You can use it for 5-6 days. If it seems too thick, add some water/milk and just heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds! On the same note it freezes really well also.
