Eating your oats the non mushy way

I don't like porridge. It's mushy and makes me want to gag. So I never eat it.

But recently I've discovered steel cut oats. And I don't cook them. I soak them in milk in the fridge for two days then eat them like that. They are very good. And nutritious. And filling. And they're not mushy.

1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup skim milk (or whatever % milk you like)

Put in plastic container, cover and into the fridge for two days.

Take oats out, place in two bowls, and add more milk (or not).

Add some brown sugar (maybe 1-2 teaspoons).

Add some raisins and a good sprinkle of cinnamon. Could also add chopped apples or other fruit.

This makes two good servings. I notice that the package directions say to use 1/4 cup per serving, but that's not enough in my opinion.

This is a good source of protein, fibre and probably about 400 calories.

Quite yummy.
