Have you ever tried steel-cut oats? Years ago when I first tried them, I wasn't impressed. They were undercooked and unpleasant. All that's changed now. Get ready to turn your breakfast world on end with a new kind of oatmeal that's satisfyingly chewy, healthy, and delicious.
More "whole" grains than oatmeal, steel-cut oats are oat groats that are simply cut, while oatmeal is whole oat groats that have been steamed and rolled. The quicker they cook, the more processed they are.
Most people avoid eating steel-cut oats because they can take as long as 40 minutes to cook. I've got a quick tip for you, though: Making overnight oats takes only a moment of advance planning and with a couple minutes the night before, they'll be ready to go by morning. Here's how to do it.
