  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 tablespoon oat bran
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds*
  • 1 tablespoon cracked flaxseed
  • 8 dates, chopped roughly
  • 8 prunes, chopped roughly
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Place all of the ingredients except for the milk in a medium-sized saucepan with 3 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook for 10 minutes for a chewier texture and 12 minutes for a softer texture.
  2. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 3 minutes. Serve hot with low-fat kefir, low-fat milk, or milk replacement, such as soy, rice, or almond milk.
