I love eating steel cut oats in the morning! They are so filling and healthy, and give me a great start for the day. The best part is that I can make a whole batch one morning and it will last me for a week. They are also so diverse and you can add really any extra ingredients you like. Whether it is nuts or fruit, and any kind of sweetener is good with it. So give it a try! You will feel healthy and filled.
What you need:
2 C steel cut oats
7 C water
1/4 tsp salt
AND any other ingredients your heart desires!
Bring water to a rolling boil and add the steel cut oats. Lower temperature and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 30 minutes or until all of the water has been absorbed. Make sure you stir a few times, especially at the end to make sure it doesn't get burnt.
I also love to eat my steel cut oats with milk that I pour over it after it is done cooking. Yummy!
* You can also cook steel cut oats in the crock pot overnight. I tried this once and it worked pretty well, but the edges where the cereal was touching the crock pot got a little crisp! I am sure with some trial and error you could find the perfect recipe!
