Pomegranate Steel Cut Oats

Pomegranate Steel Cut Oats

Nothing makes me happier in the morning than a cup of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal. I have almost the same bowl of chocolate oatmeal every chance I get, but every now and then, I am inspired by a new ingredient and try something different. This time, I was inspired by the Nativas Pomegranate Powder I received from my Vitacost order. (Psst..if you’d like $10 off your first order with Vitacost.com, use my referral link)

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Start by cooking your steel cut oats. I like Trader Joe’s quick cook version. If I am cooking in bulk (which is totally awesome and possible with steel cut over regular oats), I will use the stove. For single servings, the microwave is quick and easy.

I like my oats thick and creamy, so I always add a touch of almond or coconut milk after it’s done cooking.

Then, simply add your ingredients…

And stir. I am sad to say this did not turn out pink, because that would’ve been cool. But I promise it takes like pomegranate.

I also didn’t have any fresh pomegranate for the topping, so I chose to top with Kashi Go Lean Crunch Cereal, 1/2 banana, a handful of blueberries and some goji berries. Enjoy!
