This Cranberry Orange Steel Cut Oats Recipe is a quick, easy, gluten free and healthy homemade breakfast. Stovetop oatmeal flavored with fresh squeezed orange juice and dried cranberries. What a great way to start your morning, especially when it is cold outside!
I am proud to be partnering with Stonyfield and Bob’s Red Mill to bring you this tasty recipe! As always, all opinions are 100% mine.
This is the kind of hearty breakfast that will warm you up on chilly Fall or Winter mornings. This Steel Cut Oats Recipe has some holiday flavors without being IN YOUR FACE. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy gingerbread, snickerdoodle and pumpkin spice. . . but I do not want to eat meals with those flavor combos the entire season.
Speaking of chilly mornings I have big news, I am moving up to the mountains! I have lived in a super hot California valley for over 10 years and the older I get the more I HATE the triple digit heat here. I just cannot take another summer of 115°. And luckily I don’t have to. My new home is up in the pine trees where the summers are mild and the winters are snowy. In fact, I’ll be living at the base of a volcano! Wish me luck.
I am so looking forward to those chilly mornings curled up under a blanket enjoying warm comforting meals like this.
These oats are very simple to make. I use my large sauté pan to cook the oats then just add whatever toppings I am in the mood for.
I topped these Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats with oranges, pecans, maple syrup and Stonyfield Whole Milk Yogurt. I don’t like to cook my oats in milk because it can get a weird separated look. So I make my oatmeal creamy with a dollop of yogurt.
And isn’t this just the most gorgeous breakfast you’ve ever laid eyes on!?!? It’s like the super model of steel cut oats.
But not only is it pretty, it tastes ahhhhMazing!
Make a steaming bowl of steel cut oats and a hot cup of coffee and get your morning started right!

In large sauté pan; bring fresh orange juice, water and salt to a gentle boil.
Add steel cut oats, orange zest and dried cranberries. Reduce heat to medium/low, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Test the consistency. At this point it will still be quite chewy. For creamier oats add 1/2 cup water and cook 5-7 minutes.
Serve hot with toppings.
