How to make oatmeal from scratch with pinole

When most people think of oatmeal they think of a paper packet with dehydrated dust flavored with fake syrups. Those microwaveable packets are less delicious and less nutritious then the healthier options we can make.

One of the best thing about cooking your own oats is that you are free to flavor your oatmeal as you wish, whether that's with bananas and peanut butter, cream and berries. With our Pinole you can get added protein and complex carbs for long lasting energy or as a recovery from a hard workout..

Here is our recipe:

1 cup steel-cut oats

3 cups water or your choice of milk

1 cup of protein pinole

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan, and stir in your oats.

  2. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook oats until soft, 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. If all the liquid has reduced before your oats are tender, stir in a bit more water or milk and continue to cook.

  4. Once the oats begin to soften and the liquid thickens, you can add any flavorings you are using (salt, butter, honey, etc.).

  5. Simmer and stir until the oats reach your desired texture and consistency. Top with a sliced banana, blue berries, raspberries, and blackberries. You can also sprinkle on some cinnamon and powdered sugar for extra taste!
