This is an easy way to enjoy steel cut oats for breakfast. It's very filling and if you split it into three servings (it's good reheated if you are careful not to microwave it too long), it's about 315 calories per serving.

1 1/4 cup steel cut oats (750 calories - remember you are making 3 servings)
1 1/2 cups water (0 calores)
1 banana (~100 calories depending on size/weight)
1 tablespoon craisins (about 1/4 cup is 100 calories - I used the 100 calorie packs from Ocean Spray)

1. The night before, throw the water, craisins and then the steel cut oats into your blender. Let them sit overnight.

2. In the morning, start your blender. While the water and oats are blending, chop the banana and then add it to the blender, too.

3. Continue blending until the oatmeal is a nice, smooth texture.

4. Eat! I love to top this oatmeal with a sprinkle of cinnamon. This recipe for oatmeal makes for a very filling breakfast. And you can substitute any type of fruit you want!
