Maple Steel Cut Oats in a Jar with Berries

4 days of delicious breakfast to go


1 cup of steel cut oats
4 cups of water
4 tablespoons of maple syrup
2 tablespoons of flax seeds (optional)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds (optional)
1/2 cup of frozen berries
4 jars


Bring the water to a boil then add the steel cut oats along with the seeds. Let oats come to a boil, then turn to a medium low simmer for 25 minutes until the water is almost all absorbed. Stir in the maple syrup. Divide this mixture into 4 jars then top each jar with a generous amount of frozen berries. Screw on the lids then refrigerate until your busy morning begins.

Remove the jar lid, then microwave for 1.5 minutes covered with a paper towel (to prevent the berries from splattering all over your microwave). Stir and enjoy with a splash of warmed almond milk!
