Instructions Checklist
  • The night before: In a 2-quart saucepan, bring 2 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add 2/3 cup steel-cut oats (not quick-cooking). Stir, let cool to room temperature. Cover; refrigerate in pan overnight.

  • In the morning: Add 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until oats are tender but still chewy, 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/3 cup milk, and cook until creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide between 2 bowls. Spoon on light-brown sugar and toppings (such as banana chips or sliced apricots), if desired. For a crunchy texture, add toasted nuts.
