Elaine Lapinsky submitted this recipe to us and we love it! Here’s what she says about why she loves this recipe…
“I enjoy eating wholesome, real food so I try to incorporate as many nutritious foods in one recipe. I use organic items as often as possible. I use the steel cut oats as they are less processed. All of the add- ins have a nice amount of fiber and will keep you satisfied until lunch!”

Sounds good to us! A hearty and nutritious breakfast is so important. Here’s how to make this ‘Breakfast Delight’!

Prepare the night before:

  • 2 Cups steel cut oats in a large pot
  • 4 cups boiled water
  • ¼ -1/2 cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Dried fruit: raisins, dried cherries
  • Put a lid on pot and let this soak overnight

In the Morning:

  • Cook for about 5-10 min and stir often. You may need to add more water.
  • Add the following, then cover with pot lid, shut off the burner and allow the frozen fruit to thaw:
    • ½ cup canned pumpkin
    • Frozen blueberries
    • Frozen raspberries
    • ¼ cup Milk
    • 2 TBSP organic unrefined coconut oil
  • Add to the bowls:
    • Sliced bananas
    • Sliced strawberries
    • 1 TBSP Peanut butter and/or Almond butter
    • 1 TBSP molasses

Mix together and ENJOY!

Hint: Open a can of pumpkin and put tablespoon scoops of the pumpkin on a large plate and place it in the freezer. It freezes solid in a few hours or less. Take the plate out and in a few minutes, you can pop them off the plate and put in a freezer bag for more mornings of yummy oatmeal!
