Steel-Cut Oatmeal topped with Walnuts, Almonds, Berries, & Chia Seeds

Steel-cut oatmeal, when prepared right, is way more delicious that I ever imagined. It took me a long time to ever go near oatmeal because it looked so unappealing, but now I cannot live without it. Oatmeal is also a good way to load up on nutritious toppings, like chia seeds, nuts, and fruit (all fertility superstars!). For the oatmeal,  I like to use Arrowhead Mills Steel Cut Oatmeal because it cooks in 10-12 minutes, as opposed to 30 minutes some of the others take.

This recipe makes 2 large servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel cut oatmeal
  • 3 tsp brown sugar per serving (you can also use agave nectar)
  • blueberries for topping
  • 2 tbsp raw, chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp almond slivers
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
