I love oatmeal.
Not the bland, gooey stuff that most of us hated as children. No, I am talking about well spiced, properly sweetened and thoroughly cooked through oatmeal. The kind that almost makes you forget you’re even eating oatmeal.
On a cold winter morning before taking on a below zero icy freeze, loading up on a nice warm bowl of oatmeal is just what the doctor ordered. And speaking of doctors orders, oats, which are chuck filled of dietary fibers, have been known to lower high blood pressure, and reduce risk of heart attack. After all, the bible tells us of our bodies:
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
And it is a blessing to start our daily glorification with a wholesome and delicious breakfast, like this Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal:
• 2-4 cups fresh steel cut oats
• 1 cup almond milk
• ½ cup whole milk
• 1/3 cup evaporated milk
• 1 tablespoon cinnamon (or more if you like)
• 1 teaspoon nutmeg
• ½ -1 cup water
• Raw Brown Sugar (Amount based on your sweetness preference)
• ½ cup raisins
o In a quart pan, add all liquid ingredients (except evaporated milk)
o Add spices, and vanilla, then stir
o Add Steel Cut oatmeal
o Place over low-medium heat, stirring often
o After the Oats are softened and thickened lower heat
o Add evaporated milk
o Add sugar and raisins
o Allow to thicken a bit more
o Remove from heat
o Serve immediately, while warm.
Enjoy, and be blessed!
