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)
- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
- 2 tbsp freeze dried pomegranate powder
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tsp agave
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tbsp almond milk (I like Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla)
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!

This recipe contains 9 g of fiber and is a good source of antioxidants, calcium and iron from the oats. If you’re topping with a banana, you’ll enjoy a potassium boost too!
