Mornings here in the great white North are still chilly, and most of us still have snow on the ground! Even though our minds are thinking of spring, and our gardens, and sunshine…our reality is still very wintry.
Sometimes the best way to face the cold morning is to know that you have a lovely warm breakfast to start the day. Steel cut oats are a healthy and nutritious option, and the Instant Pot makes cooking them so easy! You can get them going and then go for a brisk walk in the cold air, or get ready to leave for work, and voila! Soon you have the yummy oats as a backdrop for whatever spices or tastes that you are in the mood for.
The traditional maple syrup and brown sugar taste combination is good and very satisfying. We also offer another version – you know those fried apples you can get at restaurants like Cracker Barrel? The ones that are addictingly good? You can buy cans of them at most grocery stores, and they make a lovely addition to a hot pot of oats. Try it and you will be hooked!
