These baked steel cut oats are my newest obsession.
Made with really simple ingredients, they’re just brimming with antioxidant power.
After one hour in the oven, the oats turn completely purple from the cherries and blueberries, and every serving is nice and sweet, without any added sugar.
Right from the oven you will be able to scoop it with a spoon. After the pan cools, you can cut the oats into squares. One batch is big enough for a few extra servings, sure to come in handy on the next few busy mornings. It’s a nutritious and truly delicious way to start the day, and I think it makes a pretty great afternoon snack, too.
