Strawberry and Cinnamon Flax Steel Cut Oats

Mother’s Day has come and gone. I loved the hugs and help that I received throughout the day. It was wonderful. We also visited with a few of the people in our neighborhood who have been great examples to my children. It made some of the widows day to receive a visit if their own children were unable to.

Now it’s back to the last few weeks of school for the kids. I’m not going to lie–I’m nervously excited. I love having the kids home but it’s also hard to keep them entertained all summer long. They are so used to a school like structured day and it’s hard to keep them that entertained all day.

Oatmeal often comes to the rescue. Since I utilize the rice cooker, it makes it easy to pop in the cooker and attend to the kids while it cooks. Steel cut oats are my favorite for cooking in the rice cooker. They seem to cook perfect everytime. If you don’t have a rice cooker you can purchase one for as little as $10! Look for specials and sales. I got mine at my local Walgreen’s on sale. Mine is a smaller one, but it works well for our family.

Strawberry and Cinnamon Flax Steel Cut Oats

1/2 cup steel cut oats

1 tbsp flax seed meal

1-2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup water

4-5 strawberries, diced


In a rice cooker, place steel cut oats, cinnamon, flax and water. Stir to combine. Set rice cooker to “cook”. Your rice cooker may vary, but it typically takes about 20-30 minutes to cook. When cooker is done, remove oats and pour into a cereal sized bowl. Top with strawberries and pour milk as desired.

Serves 1

To make additional servings, increase oats and water on a 1:2 ratio. For every 1/2 cup of oats, increase the water by 1 cup.
