Maple Raisin Steel Cut Oatmeal

Top each serving with a pat of butter and/or a few chopped nuts for a pretty and tasty final touch.

Cooking Notes:

Any dried fruit can be used in place of the raisins. Cranberries and dates work great. Just let them set in the oatmeal for a few minutes to rehydrate a bit.

Fresh fruit can also replaced the raisins. A chopped banana or a chopped apple both taste great. Again, just be sure to let your fruit of choice set within the oatmeal for a short while so the flavors intermingle.

Brown sugar can be used in place of the maple syrup, but use a little less - maybe 3 Tablespoons.

A creamy, tasty steel cut oatmeal with just the slightest little pop from each tiny oat. Easily modified to fit your tastes.

Tip: Look for Steel Cut Oats in the bulk section of your grocery store if they have one. At my local store, they're 1/4 the price of Steel Cut Oats in packages like the ones from McCann's or Bob's Red Mill.
