Collect your jars and other equipment. I like pint-sized jars for this as they allow a little more room for adding nuts, raisins, and milk later. But you can also use half-pint jars. Mix-Ins: Milk or soy milk, Cinnamon or other spices, Raisins or other dried fruit, Walnuts or other nuts, Jam or Honey.

Recipe Ingredients for Night-before Steel Cut Oats

2/3 cups steel cut oats
1 2/3 cups water
1/8 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Night-before Steel Cut Oats

  1. Bring the oats, water and salt to a boil. Simmer for about 3 minutes then turn off the heat.

  2. Ladle the oats and water into the jars. Cover the jars tightly with their caps and rings. Leave on the counter overnight. (This is how I make my oatmeal and I have had absolutely no problems with it, healthwise, but if for some reason you are not comfortable leaving hot oatmeal out overnight, you can also refrigerate the jars. The oatmeal won't be quite as well cooked in the morning; it will be a thinner, less creamy oatmeal. But it will still be fine.)

  3. The next morning, put all but one of the jars in the refrigerator. Take the cap off one jar and stir up the oatmeal inside. Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, or until quite hot. Add any milk, raisins, or other mix-ins. Enjoy!
