Chef's Notes

Substituting steel-cut oats for rolled oats
Since they’re not steamed and rolled first, steel-cut oats may need a longer time to absorb the milk compared to rolled oats. We recommend soaking steel-cut oats for at least 8–10 hours or longer. Taste them to see if they’re tender and chewy enough to your liking. If not let them sit longer.

Nut-Free
Substitute 1 cup diced pineapple for the walnuts.

Storage
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Add More Nutrients
Add 1 Tbsp chia seeds to the oatmeal mixture. (You may need to increase the amount of plant-based milk by ½ a cup.)
