✨Steel Cut Oats✨
✨Less processed than rolled oats which means it retains more nutritional value, the thicker pieces take longer to digest making you feel fuller for longer while slowing down the process of conversion to sugar creating a steady source of energy instead of energy spikes.
✨Steel cut oats have a nutty taste, contain protein, fiber and vitamins and minerals.
✨Boil or slow cook with water and add milk and sweetener of choice, top with fruit or nuts and enjoy!
✨Some ideas of what to use for toppings and mix-ins: homemade cashew or coconut milk, sliced banana, blueberries, strawberries, apples, goji berries, mulberries, chia seeds, flax seeds, cacao powder and nibs, raisins, cinnamon, almonds, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, maple syrup, dates or honey. Create your own mixture!
✨Buy organic steel cut oats from the bulk section at the store or organic plain steel cut oats in a package; without added ingredients. It’s so easy to make it on your own! It’s the easiest for me using an Aroma Rice Cooker. Just pour in the water and steel cut oats, press a button and walk away. It’ll beep when it’s done in about 40-50 minutes. Make it before getting ready in the morning and by the time your done showering and are dressed it’ll be ready to eat!
