Breakfast for Lunch: Steel-Cut Oats with Dates, Coconut, Cinnamon and Pecans

October 27, 2017 – 07:39 pm

Do you ever eat breakfast for lunch? Today we wanted a bowlful of those pearly steel-cut oats, hot and fragrant. Here are the other things we threw in...

We've waxed rhapsodic about steel-cut oats in the past and we're not about to quit. Steel-cut oats are far less gummy and thick than flat-rolled oats. Read all about the differences between oats here: What's the Deal With Oatmeal?

For this particular batch of steel-cut oats we boiled two cups of salted water, then threw in a cinnamon stick, a handful of chopped dates, and about a 1/4 cup of flaked coconut. We slowly stirred in one cup of steel-cut oats, turned down the heat and let them simmer for about half an hour.

When they were thick and creamy we heaped them in a bowl, sprinkled on some pecans, a touch of sugar, and some butter and milk. Breakfast for lunch!

The dates got all gooey and oozey when they cooked - rather like sweet, natural caramel in the oatmeal. You can see a bit of it in the photo above.
