Recipe: Homemade Oatmeal On The Go

I know instant oatmeal is so easy to do, but the steel-cut oats are just healthier. Sometimes with 'healthier' that time can be consuming. When you wake up in the morning on the run these less than five minutes pre-made steel oat muffins are key!

Just pop two (150 calories) or three (226 calories) into a bowl, microwave for a few minutes, and add your favorite toppings. The soft and chewy consistency is the same as if you cooked up a fresh batch, but in so much less time!

INGREDIENTS
  • ​8 cups water

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 cups steel-cut oats

  • 7 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

DIRECTIONS
  • Bring water and salt to a rolling boil. Pour in oats, stir, and reduce heat to simmer, cooking for 30 minutes.

  • Turn off heat and stir in the maple syrup and cinnamon. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  • Lightly grease 21 sections of two 12-cup muffin tins, and pour in the oatmeal.

  • Freeze flat for five hours. Remove pan from the freezer and allow to thaw for a few minutes. Using a butterknife, gently pop the oatmeal "muffins" out of the pan, seal in a freezer bag, and keep frozen.

  • When you're ready to eat, place two to three in a bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
