|1 cup||steel cut oats||$0.70|
|1/2 tsp||ground ginger||$0.05|
|1/4 tsp||ground cloves||$0.05|
|1/2 tsp||vanilla extract||$0.15|
|1/4 cup||brown sugar||$0.12|
|1/4 cup||sliced almonds||$0.56|
|1 cup||light coconut milk||$0.71|
STEP 1: In a medium pot bring 4 cups of water and 1/2 tsp of salt to a boil. Once it reaches a rolling boil, add 1 cup of steel-cut oats. Reduce the heat to medium/low and let simmer for about 30 minutes or until the mixture is to your desired thickness.
STEP 2: As the mixture simmers, add the cinnamon, ginger, cloves, vanilla extract and brown sugar.
STEP 3: Once the oats are finished cooking, divide it up into four servings and top each with 2 Tbsp of raisins, 1 Tbsp of sliced almonds and 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Dig in!
NOTE: As with all of my oats, I divide them into resealable containers and keep them in the refrigerator. Then, in the morning, all I have to do is grab one and microwave it for a minute or so and I have a super hearty breakfast ready to go!
Originally I intended to put cardamom in the spice mix but later realized that I didn't have any. You can try this out with just about any combination of Indian spices and I'm sure it would be fantastic. I even thought about putting a chai tea bag in the water as it came to a boil before adding the oats. I'm not sure what kind of flavor that would add but it sounds like it could work!
