No-Cook 48 Hour Steel Cut Oats

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 ½ cup milk (dairy, almond, or cashew)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ to 2 whole bananas
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 4 tbsp. chia seeds

Directions

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl mash the banana with a little of the milk until it is almost a puree.  Add the remainder of the milk, vanilla, applesauce, cinnamon (optional), and 2 tbsp. of the chia seeds.  
  2. Add the oats and mix well until moistened.  Cover and refrigerate for 48 hours.
  3. After 48 hours*, divide the oats into 4 equal servings. Top each serving with equal parts of blueberries and remaining chia seeds.

Tips

  • *Allow 48 hours for the oatmeal to soften in the refrigerator prior to eating or it will result in a chewy texture.
  • If serving immediately, consider adding freshly sliced banana or other seasonal fruits.  
  • For additional convenience, place each serving portion in an airtight container for a quick on-the-go breakfast and begin eating after 48 hours.  Add sliced banana or other fresh fruit just before eating, if desired.
