Running Breakfast

This Steel- Cut Oats breakfast will keep you movin’ and your blood sugar levels stable until late in the morning. It is perfect for runners and non-runners alike. This recipe is from my favorite cook book mom-a-licious, if you don’t have it, get it! It will help transform your eating habits, promise.

The key to steel cut oats is to soak the oats overnight in the same pan you want to use to cook them in the morning. 1 cup steel-cut oats and 1 cup water. Otherwise it will take 40 minutes to cook instead of 10 minutes. First of all, who has 40 mins in the morning?!
Ok, so you soaked the oats over night.
  • Add 2 more cups of water or a mix of water and milk
  • Add cinnamon and a pinch of salt if you want (I don’t do this step usually)
  • Cook for 10-15 mins
  • Enjoy with a sprinkle of brown sugar, blueberries, nuts, anything you want
The Benefits of Steel Cut Oats: (From Domenica Catelli)
  • less processed than quick and rolled oats
  • higher in fiber
  • by soaking the steel-oats, breaks down the coating on the oats allowing you to absorb more of the nutrients
  • more filling
  • high in nutrition for sustained energy throughout the morning
Make extra, refrigerate in little containers, and enjoy on other mornings for easy breakfast. Zap for 1 minute in the microwave and you are good to go.
