Steel cut oats can take forever to cook if you want to make oatmeal in the morning. We had so many steel cut oats and they were not getting eaten, so I was determined to make a breakfast “cookie” out of them.
Wait… What is a Steel Cut Oat?
Steel cut oats are the whole inner portion of the oat kernel making it a clean, healthy, whole grain choice. Oats that you find labeled “quick cooking” oats are made out of steel cut oats. These “rolled oats” are husked and then flattened, or rolled out. The nutritional benefits are very similar.
Tip: If you will not eat these within 2-3 days, make sure to freeze or refrigerate. There are no preservatives, so they will go bad quickly if left out.
