Creamy steel-cut oatmeal and roasted strawberries are a match made in heaven in this filling and heart-healthy breakfast in a bowl!
Well, a happy Monday to you too!
In other news…hiiiiii! Are you ready for the bowl of oatmeal of your life and a supa’-fun giveaway to boot?!
I know you just said yes, because you guys are super-smart people. That’s why I like you.
Psssssst! Giveaway details are at the end of this post. Keep a’readin!
Let’s me just throw this out there: I have a not-so-secret confession, guys.—I’m addicted to oatmeal. I’m a total creature of habit and have a bowl of oatmeal pretty much every.single.day for breakfast. Why? Because I’m super-boring that’s why. Totally livin’ the glamorous food blogger life.
I am attempting to put a sprinkle of interesting in my morning oatmeal convention because boring stuff just doesn’t agree with this picky foodie’s tastebuds.
*Disclaimer: I’m not picky even a little bit. I like everything. Just had to let you know that.*
ENTER, maple-roasted strawberries. Meet my bowl of creamy hot steel-cut oatmeal.
Stay together forever and always grace my cereal bowl in the dark hours of woe. (i.e. early mornings)
YES x 10.
This oatmeal is kinda an awesome sight for those sore eyes on those early, sluggish mornings where even coffee isn’t doing it’s job. (I know that feeling faaaaaar too well) The steel-cut oatmeal is UNBELIEVABLY smooth and creamy, and the strawberries. Oh, gosh guys where do I even begin….
I guess I should start by telling you that roasted strawberries is totally becoming a thing. Get on board because I just insist.
Here’s what happens: As the strawberries roast in the maple-y goodness, they will burst a little bit and get all soft and tender and you will seriously want to faceplant into the pan right then and there.
Try to save at least 1/4 of the pan though for that bowl of gorgeous oatmeal. It really needs a straw-buddy.
Haaaaardy-har-har, I’m so clever….
Generous helpings of milk are pretty awesome too. And completely necessary.
Like so. →
This gorgeous bowl of oatmeal awesomeness is just how you want to face a Monday, friends. Oh, and I definitely would not object if you were to……well…. drizzle melted chocolate on top of the strawberries, or something crazy like that.
It is Monday after all. 😉
