Low Down on Steel Cut Oats

Oatmeal has always been considered to be a healthy nutritious breakfast.  Back when I was a kid I would get the instant kind that had all different kinds of flavors.  I loved it as a kid but now with more education I understand that this is a huge difference in the Quaker box and less proccessed oats. 

Steel Cut Oats:

Steel cut oats are the most minimally processed type of oat cereal.  Because of the minimal process they retain more nutrients then other more processed brands.  When buying oats make sure that they are organic with no added sugars and as minimally processed as possible.  Although I love eating steel cut oats for breakfast, old fashioned rolled oats are still a good source of fiber and nutrition as long as they are good quality. 

How to Cook Steel Cut Oats

1 cup steel cut oats
3-4 cups filtered water, you can replace 1 cup with almond milk or other milk substitute if you would like


1. Cook on stove top for 45 minutes until soft, add more water if needed.  If cooking a pressure cooker, add 3 cups of water and cook for 7 minutes.
