|Steel Cut Oat Bake|
Steel Cut Oat and Fruit Bake
2 cups steel cut oats (mine were from Trader Joes)
4 cups milk (non-dairy is fine)
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries (or blueberries)
handful of dried fruit
1 t. baking powder
2 T. maple syrup
1 t. vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over the oats and let soak for 10-20 minutes to soften. Drain. Stir together all ingredients and pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes. Allow to cool and portion into containers. In the morning, I just pour a little milk over my oats and microwave for 30-45 seconds (I don't like my food very hot).
Next time I'm going to stir in some eggs or egg whites to add some protein.
