I have a thing for oatmeal as I’m sure you have seen. I started eating steel cut oatmeal when I was nursing my twins and I have seriously been obsessed with it since then. I have a hard time starting my day without it at this point.
I like to make a big batch of steel cut oats to keep in the fridge. That way the mornings are super easy – I just fill a bowl, warm it up in the microwave and add whatever nourishing toppings I feel like.
I make 2 cups of oatmeal and cook it simply, with water. This usually lasts me through the week. However, my kids love it too now so I’m finding myself making it more often. This is super simple but an awesome way to pack in healthy plant-based protein!
If you make this, please leave a comment and let me know how it was!

- 1 kiwi
- 4 strawberries
- 1 banana
- 4 blackberries
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
