Steel-Cut Oatmeal


Oatmeal, walnuts and raisins in a bowl

People tend to shy away from steel-cut oatmeal because it takes a long time to cook,  I’m not going to tell you otherwise.  It takes about 30-40 minutes of cooking time. But on weekends or on days when you need to be more than just fueled, spend some extra time to make a breakfast that nourishes and satisfies your body from the inside out.   Eating 3/4 cup of oatmeal a day contains about 3 g soluble fiber and has been found to decrease LDL and total cholesterol levels.


1 cup steel cut oatmeal

4 cups skim milk

1/2 tsp cinnamon

brown sugar or agave

1.  Bring 4 cups of water or skim milk to a boil.

2.  Slowly add 1 cup of oatmeal, stirring continuously.

3.  Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
