  • 1 1/3 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/2 cup barley, pearled, dry
  • 5 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup almonds, sliced
  • 4 tablespoon maple syrup, pure
  • 1 cup blueberries


  • Combine oats, barley, and water in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (Oats will expand as they soak up water so be sure the bowl is big enough.)
  • Uncover bowl and stir in salt. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 3 minutes. Stir well and microwave 3 more minutes. Stir again and cook for 2 minutes. Most of the liquid should be absorbed at this time.
  • You can toast your almonds in a pan on the stove for a few minutes at this time and then let them cool on a paper towel.
  • When oats are done, stir in vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond milk.
  • Divide mixture into 4 bowls, drizzle with maple syrup, and sprinkle with almonds and blueberries.
