Hi there! It’s Wednesday! (just in case ya didn’t already know!)
This morning… My breakfast tasted “GORGEOUS!” (thank you Taylor for suggesting this wonderful food adjective!)
You will definitely want to ‘Steel’ this recipe!
Scrumptious Overnight Butternut Squash Steel Cut Oatmeal
I have ALWAYS wondered if overnight oats would work with steel cut oats as opposed to rolled oats.
- Steel-cut oats are the whole oat kernel, which is cut into two or three pieces using steel discs. They are a better source of fiber than rolled oats, but take longer to cook.
Not only did steel cut overnight oats work, they tasted amazing! The texture was much more crunchy/chewy than regular overnight oats.. (Which I loved!) I will definitely be making these much more often!
Here is the recipe!!
- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
- 1/3 cup canned butternut squash (pumpkin would also work here)
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1 tbs chia seeds
- 1/4 + 1/8 cup non-dairy milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Pumpkin Pie Spice and Cinnamon
Garnish: 1/2 tbs almond butter mixed with 1/2 tbs maple syrup. + Cacao nibs
Since my banana was frozen, I microwaved the banana and butternut squash together until the banana was soft. Mix in the rest of the ingredients (steel cut oats, chia seeds, milk, vanilla, and spices). Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Do this now! They were THAT good!
I like to make mine in a jar – just cause jars are cute 🙂
The reason I used butternut squash in these oats is because I had left over squash from this amazing recipe that I made last night for my not so cheesy vegan mac n’ cheez! (It’s one of my favs!)
I love this sauce so much, I use it on everything!
My lunch today:
For lunch dessert I had:
Notice the apple core- I love eating the core (it might be my favorite part).. Just because I’m so hard ‘core.’
Does anyone else eat the apple core?!
I’ve got a busy afternoon ahead, so gotta get a move on!
