Steel Cut Oats with dried cranberries and cinnamon. They are yummy, they are chewy, they have a nutty flavor, they are good for you and the taste is miles away from Old Fashioned, Quick or Instant. Even if you don't like oatmeal you will love these oats. Just ask Goldielocks, they are just right.

How to Make Cranberry Cinnamon Oats

Step-by-Step

  1. Place water into a medium sized saucepan; over med-high heat bring water to a rolling boil. While water is heating, measure out the oats, cranberries and cinnamon, place in small bowl (I use a paper plate).
    When water comes to a boil, stir the oatmeal and cranberry mixture into the water. Let mixture return to a boil then turn heat down to where it is still bubbling, just not so hard. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Oats will be done when all liquid is absorbed. Serve hot with a spoon of brown sugar and a little milk or your favorite topping for oatmeal.
  2. Note: I put a spoonful of splenda brown sugar on my serving. I also like peaches cut up into my oatmeal. Makes it taste like peach cobbler.
    There are many brands of Steel Cut Oats. McCaan's, Quaker (they are hard to find), I use Bob's Red Mill only because they seem to be a little less expensive. I do believe they are a bunch cheaper if you have a Whole Foods Market near you.
