  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk or vanilla almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • 2 medium peaches, sliced or 3 cups frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed
  • Optional toppings: Sliced almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon and additional peaches

Directions

  • In a well-greased 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 6 ingredients. Cook, covered, on low until oats are tender, 7-8 hours. Stir in peaches just before serving.
  • Pressure cooker option: Decrease water to 3 cups. Add to a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker coated with cooking spray. Stir in oats, soy milk, brown sugar, salt and vanilla. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 4 minutes. Let pressure release naturally. Stir in peaches just before serving. Oatmeal will thicken upon standing. If desired, top with optional toppings.

Health tip
  • Steel-cut oats are 100 percent whole grain. They are slowly absorbed, giving you energy that will last.

  • Editor's Note
    Steel-cut oats are also known as Scotch oats or Irish oatmeal.

      Most mornings start off with a heaping bowl of hot steel oats. Since I am the only one eating it, the leftovers allow me to have 4 additional breakfast. I just warm a bowl in the microwave. I do add cinnamon as I love the taste of oats and cinnamon.
