  • 1 cup dry steel cut oats
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cups hot tap water
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 5 tablespoons raspberry fruit preserves
  • 10 teaspoons pure maple syrup


  • In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add steel cut oats and cook until toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Add hot water to toasted oats. Bring to a boil then reduce and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Stir in milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Continue to simmer for about 20 -25 minutes, or until oats are tender but still firm.
  • Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.The oats will still be a little "soupy" but after they stand for 5 minutes or so they will thicken up perfectly.
  • Divide into 5 servings then stir in 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1 tablespoon fruit preserves, and 2 teaspoons maple syrup into each serving.
