Oh yes I went there. Cookie Butter Oatmeal! Whoa. We eat a LOT of steel cut oats in our home during the winter. I am always looking for ways to make them new and fresh for my family. I don’t want to hear ‘not that again mom’. Thankfully when I say ‘cookie butter’ they don’t seem to hear much after that. My oldest loves oats, my little one decides on a daily basis if she likes something. Maybe even hourly these days. When I made these oats she was not happy, and didn’t want to eat them. I convinced her that she needed to at least give them a try. She ate two bowls. Sometimes mom knows best right?!
I am not a huge fan of oatmeal unless it is steel cut oats or overnight oats. I tend to use old fashioned oats in overnight oats, granola or granola bars. Or an amazing coconut porridge from this book, that recipe can make me like old fashioned oats. Before I had my pressure cooker I would make steel cut oats about once a month and almost always the same since I had to keep an eye on it. Now I can start my steel cut oats and get ready for the day. No watching the pot to make sure it doesn’t boil over, no stirring. You know what ~ it takes 3 minutes to cook!!! Insane. It takes me longer to get myself and the girls ready in the morning. It is so good that I find myself craving oatmeal if I have not made it for a while. I currently have 3 pending oatmeal blog posts. I hope you all like steel cut oats!
If you are feeling really generous you can crush a cookie to add to the top. Yum!
