Start your day off with a wholesome bowl of Irish steel-cut oatmeal loaded with the goodness of multiple Superfoods!

Why Try?
Dried fruit is a convenient alternative to fresh fruits during the winter months and makes an excellent, nutrient-rich topping for a bowl of healthy whole grain oatmeal.

If you don’t have time to prepare the steel cut oats, substitute quick cooking oats and follow the package directions for 4 servings.


  • 1/2 cup dried or fresh apricots, diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups reduced-fat milk
  • 1 cup Irish steel-cut oats
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted
  • Honey, as needed
  • Cinnamon, as needed
  • Cream, as needed


  • 1 Bring water and milk to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  • 2 Add oats and salt, stirring frequently until mixture comes back to boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, bring apple juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add apricots and cranberries; cook a few minutes or until plump.
  • 4 Portion piping-hot oatmeal into 4 bowls and sprinkle evenly with plumped fruit and toasted walnuts.
  • 5 Serve with honey, cinnamon, and cream to add as needed.
