Green Tea Infused Steel Cut Oats with Apples, Ginger and Walnuts

Infusing oats with green tea bumps up the antioxidant values. Adding nuts, oil and flax help slow the absorption of the carbohydrates to stabilize blood sugar throughout the day.


3 cups of water                                                                             1 cup unpeeled, diced organic apple
3 organic green tea bags                                                          1/3 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
1 cup steel-cut oats                                                                     2 T finely chopped crystallized ginger or ½ t ground ginger
1 T minced fresh ginger
1/8 t salt                                                                                          2 – 3 t honey
2 T MCT or organic coconut oil                                               1 T ground flax seed


Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add tea bags; turn off the heat and let steep for 4 minutes. Discard tea bags. Add oats and salt and bring to a boil, stirring once, reduce heat to low and simmer covered for the allotted time. While cooking toast walnuts. Cool and chop. Remove oatmeal from heat; stir in apples, flaxseed, walnuts, MCT oil and ginger. Mix well.  Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with honey. Serve with almond or coconut milk if desired.
