I’ve been battling a cold for the last few days and I must say… I’m a complete baby. It’s ridiculous that a little fever and a stuffed nose have me straight freaking out that I’m going to suffocate in the middle of the night. Let’s not even talk about all the paper towels I’ve used as tissue, and all the weird home remedies I’ve Googled and actually tried. I’ll tell you now that sucking on raw garlic is worse punishment than a sore throat. I wouldn’t recommend it.
This creamy, sweet, and chewy steel-cut oatmeal was far from punishment. It’s my sniffle-inspired salvation.
You know those Morning Glory muffins you might see at coffee shops? They’re part carrot cake, part morning muffin. Brown sugar, grated carrot, spices, and coconut. We’re throwing all of that in a pot with steel-cut oats. Yes! The new cookbook Whole Grain Mornings has this recipe. That book is a winner!
