Steel Cut Oats With Butternut Squash

A Warming and Healthy Breakfast For a Cool Day

I love butternut squash – it’s delicious and full of vitamin A, so I have been experimenting with using it this winter in recipes such as soup and this one. Here is my yummy breakfast recipe with butternut squash. Enjoy!

1 Cup Steel Cut Oats
½ Cup Peeled and Diced Butternut Squash
4½ Cups of Water
Sliced Almonds
Sweetener (Such as Stevia or Maple Syrup)
Almond Milk

Put butternut squash and steel cut oats in water and bring to a boil – let simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.  (Or, I prefer to prepare the night before so it’s faster in the morning: Boil butternut squash and steel cut oats for 20 minutes. Let sit overnight in the refrigerator. Heat some up for breakfast the next morning). Stir in stevia or maple syrup to taste. Add almond milk. Top with sliced almonds and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Eat up!
