• 1 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of steel cut oats
  • 3 cups of boiling water
  • 1/2 of milk of choice (we like whole)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Zest of 1/2 a orange (or more, depends on you taste)
  • 1/2 a vanilla bean, split or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon whole flax seeds (optional)

Use a large pot (use that cast iron pan and add some more iron to your diet).

Add in the coconut oil and toast around the oats for 2 minutes or so. Add the cinnamon and orange zest the last few seconds before the boiling water goes in then reduce to a simmer adding the milk, vanilla and any flax seeds or whatnot (coconut is always a winner around here, unsweetened).

Combine it all with a few stirs here and there, let it cook until nice and creamy, about 20-30 minutes. Top with fresh fruit or if frozen, stir it in to warm the berries in the last 5 minutes or so.
