Overnight Steel Cut Oats with Raisins and Persimmon

Yep, you read that right. Overnight oats, with steel cut oats. It works! I was a little surprised myself.

The texture of the steel cut oats is so thick, chewy, and hearty, you won’t want to go back to rolled oats either!

Ingredients

Serves 2

  • 2/3 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk) (optional: extra for drizzling)
  • 1 small Fuyu persimmon
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 tbs flaxseed or chia seed (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • maple syrup or other sweetener to taste

Directions

Combine all ingredients. Divide the mixture into bowls or Mason jars (if your mornings are on-the-go), and place in the fridge. The next morning, drizzle a little extra milk or cream on top, adjust sweetener to taste, and enjoy! It pairs beautifully with French Roast black coffee.

  1. The texture of steel cut oats is killer. We treat them like any other grain, adding greens, a soft-boiled egg and a grating of cheese or a splash of fish sauce and sriracha. Persimmon sounds good. Nic pics. Ken

  2. I love doing this in the summer primarily when I don’t want hot oatmeal. I eat oatmeal almost every morning so it’s nice to mix things up a bit. You’ve inspired me to make it this way tonight–it’s been months. Have you tried baked oatmeal? It’s another favorite of mine: http://wp.me/pLwTO-kq
