Course Breakfast
Servings 4 people


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 cups milk or water I like to use whole or lowfat milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 or 4 peaches (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • 1/3 cup seed or nut combination
  • 4 tbsp whip cream


  1. Choose your liquid. Try a vegan version with almond milk or for a decadent bowl of oats use a 2 cups whole milk and one cup water. You will need to add 3 cups liquid for each cup of oats.

  2. Once the liquid is simmering, add your oats and salt. Continue simmering for 20 to 25 minutes until the oats are creamy.

  3. Meanwhile, add 2 TB butter to your skillet. When the butter melts and begins to get brown around the edges add your sliced peaches.

  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon add your maple syrup.

  5. Continue cooking your peaches until they begin to caramelize and the butter and gets syrupy.

  6. Remove from heat.

  7. Divide cooked oatmeal in to 4 servings and top with peaches and any other condiment that sounds good. I added coconut and crushed nuts. You can also add a dollop of cream or a nut butter.
