Make steel cut oats the night before - it will only need heating in the morning. Same proportions - 4 water to 1 oats. Stir oats into boiling water, continue stirring for about one minute, turn off heat and cover, leaving on the stove (no heat) overnight. Just reheat gently when you're ready for breakfast. I make enough for the week (in my case using 4 cups of water and one cup of oats) and refrigerate it (after it's spent the night out of the fridge as above) heating only what I need each day.
I was looking for a quick, easy and with a low content of sugar and I feel in love with it. It's a keeper!
I love steel cut oats and eat them at least 5 days a week. My favorite thing is to add a handfull of frozen blueberries and they quickly defrost in the hot oatmeal. Its cheaper to buy a big bag of frozen at Costco and its very healthy and YUMMY!
I knew eating Oatmeal for 60 days would help our bodies, BUT, tried 3 different times and could only do 3 or 4 days. Then found this recipe, and tried various fruits each day and am now over the 60 day mark and still going strong. Now we do not like the same ole bacon, eggs, toast, potatoes. Oatmeal lasts longer.
