Oatmeal Latte

Inspired by Cuppa Joe in Breckenridge, Colorado, this meeting of steel cut oats, hot coffee, steamed milk and brown sugar in one hearty, warm bowl is just as great for providing energy for a day on the ski slopes as for chasing after energetic kids.

  • Saucepan


  • 1 cup uncooked Steel Cut Oats (use gluten-free if appropriate)
  • 1 shot Espresso (or ⅓ cup strong brewed coffee)
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ¼ cup packed Brown Sugar
  • Toppings of choice, such as nuts, dried fruit, or granola


  • Cook oats according to package directions. While the oats cook, prepare espresso or coffee. Froth milk or heat it slowly on the stovetop, whisking frequently to incorporate air into the milk (this will give it a slightly frothy texture).
  • When the oats are cooked, stir in the coffee and brown sugar. Add the milk and gently fold into the oats, leaving some of the foam on top. Spoon into serving bowls and add toppings.
