Servings 1 serving


  • 1/4-1/3 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 teaspoon or less of butter
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • toppings of your choosing


The night before

  • In a small saucepan, toast the raw steel cut oats in butter for 2-3 minutes. If you're doing something else at the same time I suggest setting a timer so you don't burn the oats (I've done that a few too many times). Add in the milk and bring to a boil (another 2 minutes if you're using a timer). Remove from heat and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning

  • Reheat for just a few minutes on the stove top or until desired temperature. Top with your favorite oatmeal toppings and some extra milk.
