Why Choose Sous Vide for Your Oatmeal?

Opting for sous vide oatmeal, particularly when preparing steel cut oats, elevates the breakfast experience. The precise temperature control of sous vide cooking ensures each grain is perfectly tender, maintaining its integrity while absorbing the flavors of the added ingredients. The result is a creamy, consistent texture that traditional methods often struggle to achieve.

Exploring the Benefits of Sous Vide Steel Cut Oats

When you choose sous vide steel cut oats, you're not just making breakfast; you're crafting an experience. The benefits of this cooking method are numerous, including:

  • Enhanced Flavor Absorption: The slow and even cooking allows for a full infusion of spices and sweeteners into the oats, resulting in a richer taste.
  • Perfect Texture: Sous vide oatmeal achieves a creamy consistency without being mushy, a common pitfall of other cooking methods.
  • Nutrient Retention: Gentle cooking temperatures preserve the nutritional value of the oats and other ingredients, making for a healthier breakfast option.
  • Convenience: Preparing the oats the night before means you can wake up to a ready-to-eat, gourmet breakfast with minimal morning effort.


  • 2 Cups Organic Steel Cut Oats (Gluten Free if Preferred)
  • 2 Cups Grass Fed Milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 Cup Filtered Water
  • 3 Tsp Organic Honey (or Maple Syrup)
  • 2 Tbsp Organic Chia Seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Organic Ground Flaxseeds
  • ½ Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Organic Ground Cinnamon

Delicious Toppings to Enhance Your Sous Vide Oatmeal:

  • 1 Organic Granny Smith Apple, Sliced or Chopped
  • 1 Organic Honey Crisp Apple, Sliced or Chopped
  • 1 Cup Organic Frozen Wild Blueberries
  • 1 Cup Organic Raw Pecans, Chopped or Whole
  • Optional Toppings: Shaved Coconut Flakes, Raisins, and other fruit for added taste and texture!


  1. Begin by preheating your water bath to 145 degrees F, the ideal temperature for sous vide steel cut oats.
  2. In a 1-gallon vacuum seal pouch, combine steel cut oats, milk, water, honey, chia seeds, flaxseeds, kosher salt, and ground cinnamon. Using your Vesta Precision Vertical Vac Elite, seal the pouch, ensuring minimal air remains to achieve the best results.
  3. Place the sealed pouch in the preheated water bath, allowing the oats to cook slowly for 10 hours. This slow cooking process is the secret to the creamy texture and enhanced flavors of sous vide oatmeal.
  4. After the cooking time has elapsed, carefully remove the pouch from the water bath. Exercise caution as the contents will be hot.
  5. To serve, pour the perfectly cooked sous vide steel cut oats into bowls and garnish with your chosen toppings. The contrast of the warm oats with the fresh, cool toppings makes for an irresistible breakfast treat.
