  • 3 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 small vanilla bean
  • 1 dash salt
  • 4 cup strawberries
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds


  • Before you go to bed, put 3 1/2 cups filtered water in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  • Prepare the vanilla bean by slitting the bean open along its length with the tip of a small knife.  Pry the bean open to expose the seeds.
  • Once the water has come to a boil, stir in the oats and the vanilla bean and boil for 1 minute.  Turn off the heat, cover, and go to bed.
  • In the morning, reheat the oats in the pan.
  • Hull and slice half the strawberries and puree the other half in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  • Layer the hot oatmeal with the strawberries and strawberry puree.  Serve hot with a little milk, cream, coconut milk,  or almond milk.  Sprinkle on chia seeds or other garnish as you like.
  • Serves 2-4 depending on how hungry you are :)
