Steel-Cut Oats breakfast in a jar

Steel-Cut Oats breakfast in a jar tt

5 pint-sized Mason jars with lids

Ingredients
1 2/3 cups steel-cut oats
4 cups water
¼ teaspoon salt
2ml Cinnamon

½ cup dried cranberries – add when you turn the heat off

Optional Mix-Ins
Yoghurt
Raisins or other dried fruit
Fresh berries
Nuts or seeds

Instructions
Bring the oats, water, salt and cinnamon to a boil. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes (depending on the consistency you like) then turn off the heat and add the dried cranberries and let is cool down.
Divide the oatmeal between the 5 jars. Let stand, uncovered, at room temperature for about an hour or until cool to the touch, then cap and refrigerate or as I have done, place in the freezer.
I usually take a jar out of the freezer and place it on the counter the evening prior to going to work in the morning, then quickly add my optional mix-ins into the jar, and off I go to work, with a yummy and delicious and hearty breakfast.  I usually add some nuts, yoghurt and frozen fruit.
