So as many of you probably are - January is all about being healthy. And Good Ol Aldis has done a fabulous job at helping me in this journey! Cold Pressed Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is only $4.99 there!!! $4.99!!!! And add that to the other goodies that have jumped in my buggy - the fresh produce, agave nectar, Organic everything... It has been a great start to a new year! 8.5 pounds gone of the nasty weight that crept on in 2014... On my way to getting the rest back off. Anyone using Two Grand the phone app? I am ... loving it!!! A tad addicted... if you use it - let me know who you are so I can follow you!
Amongst the goodies I have found and tried from Aldis - was Steel Cut Oats. Sounded healthy to me! :0) So I got a container.... now what? Oh they look so pretty. So healthy... .... hmmmm.
Thankfully Pinterest had me flooded with ways to make them. I settled on one and have already made it three times. So since I am not sure my Pins will go away someday, I have decided to stick it on my own blog.
Here is the pictures of me making a double batch this week (we found a breakfast smoothie recipe that is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G that called for some of our leftover oats - which we never have. So doubling the recipe last time..
Ok here is the cast of characters...
Put Steel Cut Oats in the Crockpot:
1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups milk (you can use skim, or whatever. My favorite is to use Almond Milk)
2 cups water
1 tablespoon agave nectar (honey is ok too. I like agave cuz Aldi's has it and it seems so sophisticated)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 teaspoon chia seeds (I got mine from Walmart, they had these nifty little small bags for 97cents!)
Put ingredients in the crock-pot on high for an hour. Leave covered, turn off and let continue to cook, soak over night. In the morning Stir and turn on low for a bit to reheat.
Enjoy! And may I suggest making a super awesome smoothie outta the leftovers. Recipe coming next time I make it... :0)
