The texture of steel-cut oatmeal is delicious, chewy and creamy.
Tip: Try making it ahead of time: Make a big batch of steel-cut oats in the evenings on Sunday night and Wednesday night. Then keep it in your fridge. Each morning, simply heat it up on a stove (not microwave). It’s an easy healthy way to have your favorite breakfast ready! Top the oatmeal with your favorite fresh organic fruit and nuts. This will add more fiber, protein and healthy fats. The toppings also make it more filling.
