PREP TIME: 10 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 6 hours
For the hot oats
- 1/2 cup steel cut oats
- 1 cup water
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 T. maple syrup (or to taste)
For the toppings

1. In a small saucepan, combine the oats and water. Cover and soak for 6 hours, or overnight. This shortens the cooking time, so don't skip this step!
2. After the oats have soaked, bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the oats have absorbed all the water. Add more water as needed, and stir often to prevent burning.
3. Once the oats are cooked, remove from heat and add in salt and maple syrup.
4. Scrape all the oatmeal into serving bowls and top as desired.
