- 1 2/3 cups steel-cut oats
- 4 cups water
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 ml Cinnamon
- ½ cup dried cranberries – add when you turn the heat off
- 1 cup Yogurt - As topping
- ½ cup Raisins or other dried fruit - As topping
- ¼ cup Fresh berries - As topping
- ¼ cup Nuts or seeds - As topping
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, yogurt and frozen fruit.
