When I saw Cookin Canuck‘s recipe for Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal with Tart Cherries and Pepitas, I knew in a split second that I had to make it. I even tweeted Dara (or was it a Facebook comment?) telling her how good it looked and that I’d printed it and put it on my list to make ASAP.

A mere few days later had me whipping up Dara’s baked steel cut oatmeal in my Kudos Kitchen. Naturally I needed to put my personal spin on it to make it my own. Since I had walnuts in my freezer, bananas on my counter, and raisins in my pantry, I ran with it and made my Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal with Bananas, Walnuts and Raisins, with a wink and a nod to Dara.

The texture of this oatmeal is truly incredible. I love the heartiness that each spoonful transports to my waiting and hungry tummy knowing that it will be satisfied, with no more growling until lunchtime.

I like to pour additional almond milk over the top of mine before serving, along with a sprinkling of few extra raisins, but you be the judge as to how you’re going to serve yours. Warm from the oven, this is one tasty and nutritious whole grain breakfast that you’ll feel good about feeding your family!

  5. These are exactly the kinds of flavors I like in my oats.

  6. You either love or hate the heartiness of steel cut oats. It's much more filling and hefty than regular rolled oats but I love it just as much! Looks yummy!

  7. I swear, baked oatmeal has been on my to-try list FOREVER! I need to get on it, because this sounds amazing (and I said the same to Dara – ha!). Awesome combo.

  8. Why have I never made steel cut oatmeal before? Time to correct that, your recipe looks so gorgeous and delicious!
