Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 and ½ cup almond milk unsweetened (I prefer the vanilla flavor)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder optional
  • Toppings: 1 T craisins dried cranberries, 1/2 T flax seed 1 tsp nutritional yeast*

Instructions

Slowcooker method:

  • In a slow cooker combine the oats, coconut water, almond milk, and protein powder; whisk to combine. Turn on low and cook for 3 to 4 hours until the oats are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed. Serve in bowl and top with craisins, flax seed, and nutritional yeast.

Stove top method:

  • Combine oats, coconut water, almond milk, and protein powder in a medium-size pan; whisk to combine. Turn to low and cook 20 to 30 minutes or until oats are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed. Serve and top with craisins, flax seed, and nutritional yeast.
