Steel-Cut Oats

Since I started my new job at Winona State, I have been eating this every morning for breakfast. It definitely jump-starts my metabolism because I find myself hungry again around 9 a.m. (after eating breakfast at 7 a.m.)

Steel-Cut Oats: add 1/4 cup milk or water to steel-cut oats and place in the fridge overnight. They are ready to eat in the morning! Heat it up or eat it cold. (

  • 1/4 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/4 cup milk,  water or almond milk
  • 1 Tablespoon pecans (or other nut)
