Let’s get this straight….Pina Colada Steel Cut Oatmeal is really for breakfast. Don’t let a bit of dark rum fool ya, the alcohol cooks out folks. It’s not some kinda way to get your drink on first in the morning.

This oatmeal is packed with tropical flavor, it will whisk you away to the islands. Even if only for a few minutes…

Traditionally the ingredients in a piña colada include the following: rum, pineapple & cream of coconut.

You have that all right here. Plus steel cut oats & some healthy toppings like coconut flake, dried pineapple, nuts & golden raisins. A little bit of rum in this recipe only adds flavor. It’s not boozy tasting at all.

Around here we love steel cut oats. They take just a little while longer to cook than old fashioned oats ~ but the texture & nuttier flavor is worth the few extra minutes.

This makes enough for 8-10 servings…so you have enough to go around.

Perfect for feeding a crowd (Mother’s Day brunch) or for having plenty of leftovers at the ready.

  1. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to occasionally have a little alcohol in the morning, especially on the weekends, and it doesn’t even have to cook out. :) What a refreshing take on an oatmeal recipe – and, I love steel cut oats too!

  2. Having just returned from the Caribbean, (Punta Cana) I want to keep those island flavors going! This oatmeal would just make my day in the morning! And with the flavor of Meyer’s Rum? My favorite!! I have a bottle all ready to go in the cabinet! 😉 Great recipe Marla!
