Spiced Coconut Steel-Cut Oats

Written by Beth - Budget Bytes

I’ve been off the steel-cut oats bandwagon for a while because I’ve been addicted to my little breakfast egg quesadillas. But this week I got a hankering for the almighty oats. I didn’t realize how I missed their chewy goodness until now! Anyway, these steel-cut oats are packed with warm spices, sweet raisins, crunchy almonds, and super creamy coconut milk for an absolutely warm and comforting bowl.

NOTE: As with all of my oats, I divide them into resealable containers and keep them in the refrigerator. Then, in the morning, all I have to do is grab one and microwave it for a minute or so and I have a super hearty breakfast ready to go!
