I've been 'meaning' to try these for many months now - well I finally did this week and I love them! 12 minutes cooking on the stove and you have a yummy bowl of oats ready to top with more yumminess. Steel Cut Oats are very nutritious - they are low on the glycemic index, high in soluble fiber (8g/serving) and protein (6g/serving). (I bought Arrowhead Mills Organic Steel Cut Oats) Many of the food blogs I read regularly feature some delicious bowls of oatmeal they make, so I was well inspired. Today it was a TB natural peanut butter, 10 raisins, 1/3 banana and a drizzle of honey. The other day it was a TB of plain greek yogurt, a handful of blueberries and a drizzle of honey. Another day I used sunflower seed butter and banana. I also plan to add some chia seeds, ground flaxseed, almond butter, or walnuts. The possibilities are endless and what a great way to get a nutrition boost in the morning.
Here's a great breakdown of the different terms for oats that I saw today on Tastespotting.
