Overnight Cherry Vanilla Almond Steel Cut Oats + Winner of the Color ME Vegan Cookbook Giveaway

Posted Nov 07 2011 12:00am

Good Morning and Happy Monday!

I believe it has been a while since I have expressed my love of oats!  Oatmeal makes me "oh so happy" and it is my favorite breakfast meal. Since the weather is starting to turn cool again a warm comforting bowl of oats is just the ticket to start the day out right.  I am an early riser and in my attempt to not wake the rest of the family up with the clanking of pots and pans I have been making Overnight Steel-Cut Oats.  I made my best batch to date the other day and am excited to pass this along to you.  I am a huge fan of dried tart cherries but you can use any dried fruit of your liking.  I also threw in some Salba (white chia seeds) in the hopes that my family would not notice the addition.  They are suspect of chia seeds and I tend to like to add them into anything I can.

Overnight Cherry Vanilla Almond Steel Cut Oats
  • 2/3 cup dried tart cherries
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract 
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 teaspoons Salba Smart
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  •  toasted sliced almonds
  • 1 tsp of raw honey
Directions Coat inside of 3-1/2 quart (or larger) slow cooker with cooking spray. Add all ingredients except almonds and agave to slow cooker. Stir, cover, and cook on low for 7 hours. Spoon oatmeal into bowls.  Top with toasted almonds and a drizzle of raw honey.

Makes 5- 1 cup servings.

This oatmeal is so yummy that you could literally eat it for dessert or at least I am contemplating doing so.  It almost has a bread pudding consistency and the tart cherries plumped up and gave it a nice flavor as well as a rosy hue. 

It is also Monday and time to announce the winner of the Color ME Vegan Cookbook Giveaway.

The winner is

Thank you all for participating in the giveaway and I will have another one coming up soon.

Have a great rest of your Monday!
