This recipe calls for steel-cut oats, but can also be made with old-fashioned or rolled oats which have a quicker cooking time (about 5 minutes). If using steel-cut oats, save time by making a large batch on Sunday and keeping the leftovers in the fridge to reheat small batches throughout the week. This will give you a delicious and convenient breakfast option all week long. Reheating tip: Add ¼ cup of milk to each 1 cup batch of cold oatmeal, heat in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes or on top of the stove for 3-4 minutes, and stir before eating. Feel free to substitute the bananas, blackberries, and walnuts with your favorite types of fruits and nuts.
