  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup whole fresh or frozen cranberries and raspberries (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or brown sugar
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  1. 1

    Heat oats in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring and tossing constantly until pale golden brown and a nutty aroma develops, about 3 minutes. Add water, berries, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce to a bare simmer.

  2. 2

    Cook, stirring occasionally until oatmeal is cooked and berries have softened, about 20 minutes total. Gently mash berries with the back of a wooden spoon as they cook to rupture them. Serve immediately, drizzling with maple syrup at the table.
