Steel Cut Oats2 Comments

Recently I have been seeing steel cut oats on almost every blog that I read. I had never heard of them so my interest was piqued. I scoped them out at the grocery store, bought them, and then searched for a recipe. I also posted on my Facebook page to see if any of my readers had tried them before. Many people had, but the problem with some was the time that it took for them to cook.

For my usual breakfast, I grab a Greek yogurt to eat at work, but I plan to work these oats into my weekend routine. They are nuttier than regular oatmeal so it took a few bites to get used to the texture, but once I was over that hump I was hooked. You can top your oats with anything you please! My question to you is are you ready to jump on the steel cut oats bandwagon?

Steel Cut Oats
Serves 4
(Printable Recipe)

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup steel cut oats
3 cups boiling water
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon low-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Banana for topping (optional)

What you’ll do:
In a kettle or pot, boil 2 cups of water. In a separate large saucepot, melt the butter and add the oats. Stir for 2 minutes to toast. Add the boiling water and reduce heat to a simmer. Keep at a low simmer for 25 minutes, do not stir. Combine the milk and half of the buttermilk with the oatmeal. Stir gently to combine and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Spoon into a serving bowl and top with remaining buttermilk, brown sugar, and cinnamon. I also topped mine with a sliced banana.

    You should try this one… I’ve been making it for over a couple of weeks now and it’s amazing! I usually add a spoonful of peanut or almond butter, sliced bananas, and chopped pecans. Amazing!!!
