Have you ever tried steel cut oatmeal spiced with a jalapeno and an anaheim pepper?

I got this recipe from a friend and it turned out really good, the flavors work surprisngly great together.

This is how I prepared it:

Bring ½ cup of oatmeal and 2 cups of water to a simmer for 20 minutes. Around the 20 minute mark, add:

1 chopped dried Anaheim pepper
Two spoonfuls of almond butter
1 mashed banana
Two tablespoons of honey
Handful of dried cherries
Pinch of coarse salt
Brown sugar to taste
Dusting of cinnamon
Few pinches of Hungarian Paprika

Total cooking should be around 25 minutes.

When it’s done, add ½ cup of unsweetened coconut milk, a few slices of a Granny Smith apple, and finally some diced jalapeño peppers.

Do you think you would like this? Anything you would change to the recipe?

  1. I wouldn't have thought of these flavors together but I will try it. I can't imagine it needs any sugar with the banana, the honey and the cherries.

      You're probably right, because now that I think of it, I actually forgot to put brown sugar and it tasted good without it.
