Coconut steel cut oats
How does a hot creamy bowl of oatmeal topped with nutritious nuts and fruits sound to you? You really can’t find a better way to start your day with this heart healthy winter breakfast .
Oats in general have many health benefits. They are high in fiber, protein, manganese, zinc and other minerals. They can also help lower cholesterol. I prefer steel cut oats over rolled oats. Not only do they taste better but they are also the least processed type of oats. I don’t cook steel cut oats very often because they take longer to cook. I typically just cook my oatmeal with water, but when I want a creamier texture I like using coconut milk. It’s a great alternative to cow’s milk, specifically for those who are lactose intolerant. Here’s one of the many ways to enjoy a bowl of steel cut oats.
