Raspberry Banana Steel Cut Oats Recipe

Even though the weather in Colorado has been weirdly warm, the morning are still COLD. As in, I don’t want to put my feet on that floor cold. As we’re waking up to chilly mornings, we find ourselves craving a warm breakfast to help get us out of bed. Because let’s be honest, nobody actually wants to put their feet on that freezing ground at 6am. BUT, the promise of a hot and super comforting meal might just tempt us enough to make that sprint from the bedroom to the bathroom. This steel cut oats recipe is quick, easy, and crazy healthy. The only catch? It doesn’t taste that way.

Oh, and to the people who think oatmeal is the most basic and boring starter for the day… We say – WRONG. This raspberry banana steel cut oats recipe will both blow your mind and tickle your tastebuds. It’s everything clean comfort food should be, and then some.

Steel cut oats are a killer way to start any day. They’re a complex carb that break down slowly, which keeps you feeling full all morning. Not to mention this quick cooking version packs 8 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber, all in half a cup. Those are some seriously good ratios to start your day with.

Be warned though, make sure you grab the quick cooking version of these oats. Unless you’re down to wait 30 minutes for breakfast. In which case… To each their own.

When we initially threw this recipe together, we weren’t sure how the raspberry banana combo would be. But WOW guys. It’s tangy and sweet and creamy and oh so DELICIOUS.

Make note: raspberry and banana. It’s now a thing.

Another thing that makes this steel cut oats recipe so delicious and nutritious? The addition of flax and chia seeds. Throwing on a tablespoon of each doesn’t just add texture, it also packs a punch of powerhouse nutrients and additional protein. We’ve sung the praises of both of these ingredients before, and we’ll do it again. These little guys are SO GOOD for you!

So the next time your alarm goes off and you just can’t bear the thought of freezing your feeties, amp yourself up with the promise of this badass breakfast and you’ll be on your way in no time.

    Ohh, this looks so good. I don’t really like Steel Cut Oats myself even though I know how incredibly good it is for you, but I’d make this for my hubby who eats Steel Cut Oats. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    It’s been weirdly warm here too – even for SoCal. This mornings are finally getting chilly enough for me to want oatmeal though! This bowl is loaded with nutrients – I love all of the toppings. I definitely don’t have enough flax in my life.

    1. Mile High Dreamers

      November 29, 2017 at 1:51 am

      Flax is the BEST! We’ve started to put it in everything haha. And it was literally 75 degrees yesterday! But it’s super chilly in the mornings still. Hopefully we’ll get some snow soon!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. Bookmarking healthy and delicious meals I can imitate at home. Can you suggest a replacement for raspberries? It doesn’t grow here in the Philippines. xD Looking forward to more recipes from you guys!

      November 29, 2017 at 2:33 am

      Thanks Gellie! Honestly, any delicious fruit will be a great replacement! Try fun combinations that you already know and love to help spice up the flavor of the oats!

  • Andrea

    November 29, 2017 at 5:49 am

    Definitely will have to give this a try. I did have to say, I always make the regular steel oats and waiting is no big deal. I see it to simmer and go do my hair or finish getting ready in the morning, before I know it, it’s ready.
    BTW, got any good recipes for energy bites? Maybe something with honey?

    This looks amazing!!! I have been eating the same thing for breakfast during the week for months now and just last week I looked down at my granola yogurt and thought wow I really need to switch it up. This is a perfect new combo for breakfast, especially since I love adding flax seeds and chia seeds to my morning fuel =o)

    1. Mile High Dreamers

      December 1, 2017 at 12:37 am

      Haha we are SO guilty of eating the same thing over and over. And it’s crazy how big of a difference it makes if you DO switch it up and then you’re so pumped for breakfast haha. We hope you love this!
