…than with breakfast waiting for me and the smell of oatmeal in the air! I never eat hot oatmeal for breakfast on school days (or ever, really) because of the time it takes to make it. I had come across some crockpot recipes for steel cut oats and knew that this was for me. Last night, I whipped out my crockpot
and put the following in my handy dandy crockpot:
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 3 1/2 cups water
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 1/2 overripe bananas
- pinch of salt
This morning, I added a scoop of canned pumpkin, a scoop of cottage cheese, chia seeds, and walnuts. I then topped it with a peanut butter sauce and some pumpkin butter. Mmmm…
This was so rich and I didn’t have much of an appetite, so I barely finished half of this and put it away for breakfast another day.
Off to school. I can’t believe that this weekend is Columbus Day weekend already!
