Are you looking for a breakfast to get you through till lunch time? Then you’ll go bananas over this oatmeal. I often make this if I know I have a day full of errands and I know I won’t be home until later in the afternoon. I hate being on the road and hungry, it only leads to grabbing something to sabotage my day of healthy eating. I love to save up the 20% of my “badness” for something I really want to eat or drink instead of something because I’m ravenous. This is also a great breakfast for the days that I run or take one of my crazy workout classes and I need a strong, grounded energy that is sustainable for a longer period of time. Steel cut oats do take a little longer to cook than regular oatmeal so I have to make sure I put in on the stove as soon as I come down to the kitchen to start making the kids lunches.
