I just realized I have not posted or created a breakfast recipe in forever. Oatmeal is one of my most favorite filling breakfasts. That's the key filling! I am a breakfast girl, need it want it, cranky if I don't have it. Coffee will still always come first. I discovered steel cut oats about a year ago and let me tell you I really like them so much better than the rolled ones. They have a more of a porridge consistency than the regular rolled oats. Oatmeal is the breakfast of champions this time of year. The versatility of it is endless. Toppings, sweetness and flavors.
4 cups (32 ounces) water
1 cup steel cut oats
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 star anise pod, optional
If you need sweetness like me feel free to add any of the following:
Dark or light brown sugar, honey, nuts and any fresh fruit your heart desires.
