Super Food Steel Cut Oats

It was just one of those days when I need a super easy breakfast that was packed with healthy, nutrient dense ingredients. But besides being healthy, I craved a delicious warm bowl to comfort my morning and wake me for the day. I wanted oats. But not rolled oats. Steel cut oats. Nutty and hearty in taste and texture. I didn’t feel like standing over the stove and stirring myself back to sleep for twenty minutes so I turned to my rice cooker. I remembered seeing a super easy recipe on the Tastespotting blog. These oats only have two steps. And the second step is to “press on.” Nice. So I made the oats and added my own super foods – check these out!..

Super Foods

1. Dried White Mulberries – rich in iron, vitamin C, fiber and reservatrol. (If you like raisins – you will LOVE these)
2. Pumpkin Seeds – rich in protein, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron.
3. Blueberries – antioxidants, minerals and fiber. Super duper food.
4. Bananas – potassium, fiber.
