Tasty Tuesday: Steel Cut Oatmeal Cups

This isn’t so much of a recipe as it is an easy quick meal prep idea for you!

I saw this post on Popsugar and just HAD to do it. Am I the only one who is too lazy to cook steel cut oats in the morning? haha I hope not cause it is a rather time consuming thing and I do not have that much time in the morning. 

 

   

It was awesome! I cooked the oatmeal on the stove as directed on the back of the package. Once cooked I measured out 1/4 cup into lined muffin tins. I stuck the whole tin in the freezer for a bit to let them set and then I pulled them out and placed them in freezer bags and back in the freezer they went. I’ll use these as breakfast each morning this week and probably next cause it made 12 servings! All I had to do when I was ready to eat was top with whatever I wanted. Yum! 🙂
