Overnight Oatmeal

Most days I wake up hungry; the thought of waiting 20 minutes to cook steel cut oats makes me hungrier! This recipe is great because it’s easy. When I wake up all I have to do is heat up the oats and add the spice I’m in the mood for, fruit, nuts and seeds and I have a happy stomach. For overnight oatmeal, I prefer a ratio of 1:3 because I like to add nut milk before serving. 1 portion of steel cut oats to 3 portions of water, adjust the recipe depending on appetite and the number of servings required.

In the morning, uncover and place saucepan over medium heat, bring to a simmer for a couple of minutes.
