Maple Pecan Steel Cut Oatmeal

Wow is this stuff good!

Ingredients (for 2 servings)

  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2-3/4 cup pecan halves
  • 1/4 cup milk (I use almond or coconut)
  • 100% pure maple syrup

On the stovetop

  • Bring the water to a boil, add the oats and stir
  • Reduce the heat to a medium-low and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • When most of the water is absorbed, add the milk, pecan halves and brown sugar & cook for another 10 minutes
  • Add the maple syrup to the individual bowls of oats, about 1/2 Tbsp each

If you want to make this in the crockpot the night before, add all the ingredients except the maple syrup to your crockpot and cook on low. I would recommend adding more water because I usually burn mine. An alternative that isn’t quite as messy is to put the oatmeal mixture in a ramekin and then set that inside your crockpot. Fill the crock with water about halfway up the side of the ramekin and cook overnight on low.
