Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats: Cook Breakfast While You Sleep!

Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats: Cook Breakfast While You Sleep!

Suitable for VitaClay models VF7700 and VM7900 models ONLY 

Steel cut oats are amazing cooked in clay. The texture, flavor and overall results are far superior to any other cooking method I've used. The great thing about oats is that they are healthy and delicious, and since they are warm, they are very comforting and filling on chilly fall mornings. 

I love experimenting with new flavors with oats--pretty much any fruit will work with them and that just adds more nutrition and sweetness, and keeps breakfast exciting, new and different! 

Did you know you can pre-set the VitaClay multi-cooker so it cooks your breakfast while you are sleeping? Wake up to the enticing aroma of Apple Cinnamon Oats while VitaClay, your Personal Chef, does all of the work! 

Note: When cooking oats in VitaClay, be sure to only use steel cut oats: do not use quick, rolled or instant oats in VitaClay. They cook too quickly and tend to burn and stick to the bottom of the pot, which can cause an issue with the integrity of the clay.
