It’s been too long since I’ve posted some solid breakfast oats. For the oatmeal lovers out there, I promise you that these are swoon-worthy.
As in, I’m swooning right now and I just ate these for three days straight.
We can all agree that streusel topped things are best, right? Streusel topped muffins and quick breads are my fav. And a good coffee cake (like this one) is always going to be the baked treat I reach for in the morning.
This recipe is my favorite recipe for steel cut oatmeal topped off with sliced bananas and a brown sugar and oat streusel topping.
I love these oats because they taste great and are super filling. Plus, the toasted, buttery steel cut oats make this smell unbelievable while cooking!
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone! xx
- 3 cups water
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 cup steel-cut oats
- 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp rolled oats
- 2 tbsp chopped pecans
- 1 banana, sliced
- Maple syrup (optional)
- Combine the water and milk in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.
- Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oats and toast, stirring occasionally, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
- Stir the toasted oats into the simmering liquid. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently until the mixture is very thick, about 20 minutes. Stir in the salt and brown sugar. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the oatmeal is creamy, about 10 minutes more. Remove from the heat and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
- Meanwhile, prepare the streusel topping. Stir all streusel ingredients together with a fork until combined. Set aside.
- To serve, divide the oats into four bowls. Top each bowl with streusel topping, sliced bananas and maple syrup, if desired. Serve warm.

To reheat, pop each serving in the microwave in short intervals, adding in splashes of milk until you get your desired texture.
