Bowl of warm and heart fruit and honey Irish oatmeal with sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, blueberries, and a drizzle of honey.



Start St. Patrick’s Day off the right way. A warm bowl of fruit and honey Irish oatmeal makes for a hearty, comforting, and healthy breakfast.



2 ½ cups water (more as needed)

1 cup milk

1 cup steel-cut oats

¼ teaspoon Kosher salt

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 large banana, sliced

8 ripe strawberries, sliced

1 cup blueberries

½ cup honey


In a large saucepan over high heat, bring the water and milk to a full boil.

As soon as the water boils, pour in the oats, brown sugar, and salt.  Stir well and bring the mixture back to a boil.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring every few minutes so the oats don’t stick or boil over.

If the oats begin to stick or look dry and are not as tender as you would like, stir in an ⅛ cup of water.  You may need to repeat this step until the oats are as tender as you like them.

Remove the oatmeal from the heat and allow it to rest for a few minutes to thicken a bit more.

Divide the oatmeal into 4 serving bowls.

Arrange the fruit on top of each bowl and drizzle 2 tablespoons of honey over each bowl.

Serve hot.
