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 34 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

12 tsp cin­na­mon

brown sug­ar or agave
