Our strawberries and cream steel cut oatmeal recipe is a simple, yet delicious combination of steel cut oats and sweet strawberry jam.
**Products within post were used in conjunction with partnership and were received at no cost.**
For today’s recipe, we partnered up with Flahavan’s Irish Oatmeal to create an easy and healthy breakfast dish that is perfect for those busy workdays. We used their quick-cook steel cut oats to make a hearty oatmeal that fills you up and tastes great.
As you know, most steel cut oats take a while to prepare and in some cases have to soak overnight. Most people don’t have that much time on their hands; especially on workdays. For this recipe, all you need is their 5-minute single-serving packages and our Sunday Morning Strawberry Jam.
The quick-cooking steel oats retain their unique texture and density. Which is rare when it comes to most other single serving oatmeals on the market.
Usually, you end up with a bland, mushy bowl of oatmeal or an overly sugared mushy bowl of oatmeal. All you need is a few of your favorite toppings or spices, and you are good to go for the morning.
The jam provides a little sweetness, and the cream adds a touch of fat and silkiness to the offering. Best of all, it only a takes a few minutes to prepare.
Kim pointed out that one aspect of using an unflavored oatmeal is the versatility of the product. It’s a blank slate which you can modify and transform into anything you like.
For example, if strawberries aren’t your thing, try applesauce, or peaches. Some recipes include savory toppings like bacon, cheese, and green onions.
The world is full of flavors, so go crazy! If you are interested in trying Flahavan’s Irish Oatmeal, check out their product locator here. Before we get started on the instructions, let me wish everyone a long life, everlasting love, and a full belly.
How to Make Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal:
If you have already made our jam, then fixing this dish will be extremely simple. For the jam recipe, click here or on the recipe card below. For the oatmeal, all you need to do is follow the directions on the package.
The product wrapping explains you will need 1 packet of quick to cook 5-minute steel cut oats and 1 cup of water. Now, we usually add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to our oatmeal, but this is optional so it’s not listed in the directions.
Since we made 2 servings for this post, the ingredient amounts have been doubled. First, combine those 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. T
hen, reduce the oatmeal to low and let it simmer for 5 to 7 minutes depending on how thick you like your oats. Afterward, let it set for 1 minute, then split the oatmeal between 2 bowls and top with strawberry jam and heavy cream. That’s it, serve and enjoy.
