Cinnamon Raisin Steel Cut Oats January 17, 2011

Cinnamon Raisin Steel Cut Oats

Jamie says:  Steel cut oats are a great breakfast to make on the weekend, especially a 3-day holiday weekend.  They take longer to make than rolled oats, but if you have the time, they’re worth the wait.

Cinnamon Raisin Steel Cut Oats


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats (Quaker)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • dash cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil.  Stir in oats.  Reduce heat to low.  Simmer, uncovered, over low heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Stir in raisins and cook for an additional minute.
  2. Serve oats into bowls.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and add milk to taste.  Serves: 3.  Enjoy!

Steel cut oats have a very different texture than regular oats.  They taste great and make me feel healthy just eating them.  I enjoy making extras and eating the leftovers cold or reheating them.  (They take on a whole new consistency when eaten cold.  I would definitely recommend it.)

  • Nutrition note: Old fashioned oats and steel cut oats provide the same great nutrition, but are processed differently.
