Fermented Steel Cut Oatmeal Delight
Health Highlights


1/2 cup Steel cut oats, dry
1/2 cup Water (non-chlorinated)
2 tbsp Kefir
1 dash Cinnamon
1 pinch Sea Salt
3/4 cup Water (non-chlorinated)
1/2 cup Whole milk 3.3% (organic, can be mixed with 1 tbsp kefir)
1 tbsp Pistachio nuts
1 medium Banana (s)
1/4 cup Blueberries
1 tbsp Maple syrup


Fermentation Instructions:
Place the oats, 1/2 cup water, and yogurt or kefir in a bowl. Mix and cover with a cloth or plastic wrap placed loosely on top. Let sit in a warm place for at least 7 hours.

To prepare the oatmeal:
Transfer the fermented oats to a saucepan and add the 3/4 cup water*, the cinnamon, and sea salt. Bring to a boil then lower to simmer. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until the water is absorbed.

Transfer to a bowl and top with milk, pistachios, maple syrup, bananas, and blueberries. Serve immediately.


It is important to use non-chlorinated water when fermenting. Regular tap water usually contains chlorine or chloramines and fluoride that must be removed for culturing, to keep cultures healthy and produce the best finished product.
