Steel Cut Oats

Steel cut oats take a little longer to cook than your regular rolled oats but I guarantee they are so worth the wait! They have a nuttier taste and texture and are simply called 'steel-cut' as it refers to the whole oat groat being cut into 2-3 smaller bits (rather than being rolled out). 

So if you have a little extra time - perhaps a weekend morning, treat yourself to a bowl of steel cut oats that will be sure to kick start your day in the healthiest way possible.



1/2 cup Steel Cut Oats

1 1/2 cups Water (or milk but keep an eye while cooking, don't let it burn!)

Pinch of Sea Salt


For serving

1/2 cup of berries (of your choice)

Raw almonds, roughly chopped (or slivered almonds)

Honey or Maple Syrup



1. Combine the oats, water and sea salt in a small saucepan over low heat.

2. Once it boils, reduce the heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender and it thickens up. Stir occasionally. 

3. Remove from heat and place in a bowl. Top with berries, almonds and a drizzle of honey before serving.

Serves 1.
