Let’s talk Steel Cut Oats. They are whole oats that have been cut into thirds by steel blades (hence the name).
Pro: They have an awesome chewy texture.
Con: They take 30 mins to cook on the stove top.
Fix: Make these babies in a slow cooker while you sleep!
Oats are magical. They contain a special fiber, called beta-glucan, that may improve immune function & lower cholesterol. Not to mention oats fill you up so you have better appetite control all day. Now that is something to wake up for!
