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
- 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.
- 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.
