Steel Cut Oats

 

Overnight Steel Cut Oats – this time-saving, healthy, overnight oats recipe is courtesy of the amazing @choosingchia. Oats have stood the test of time, and still rise to the top when you talk Superfoods. There are many health benefits to eating oats. Aside from being gluten-free, this whole grain is a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants. 

What is the difference between regular oats and steel cut oats? It comes down to how much the oats have been processed. The benefits of steel cut oats exceed the benefits of rolled oats because of the way they are processed. Steel cut oats are dense and chewy as a result of being passed through sharp, steel blades that cut them into thin slices that help retain more fibre and protein. Steel cut oats, just as any whole oats, make a healthy addition to your regular diet.

The only downside to Steelcut oats… they take longer to cook!

Say goodbye to waiting for your oats to cook in the morning! These overnight steel cut oats will save you time in the morning and make the perfect healthy breakfast! Enjoy these oats at home, or in a jar to take on the go!”
