Super Quick Steel Cut Oats

My good friend Lara sent me a picture the other day of some instant steel cut oats she had found and I was so excited to try them!  I am a huge fan of crockpot oats and overnight oats, which can both mean breakfast pretty quickly.  The problem is that I don't always get them made in advance, and I rarely have the time in the morning to cook steel cut oats, which are my favorite.  If you haven't tried them, I highly recommend them and have all you need to know about cooking them here.  (funny that the title is "Banish instant oats forever, when it should specify instant sugar filled, low fiber boring oats!)
 
So yesterday I found the oats at the grocery store and the box looks like this:
 
 
They are super easy.  You add the package to the bowl, fill the same package up with water, at that to the bowl, and cook for 2.5 minutes.  Done.  I added a little coconut milk and some maple to mine, and they were awesome.  They still have great texture and turn out really nice.  I have a new favorite breakfast! 
 
They only have 3 ingredients, Steel cut oats, flaxseed, and salt.  Have to love simple. 
 
The nutrition is great too, 5g of protein, 4g of fiber, and only 1g of sugar (naturally occurring).  Here is what the label looks like:
 



 
These were awesome.  I could probably eat two packages, I tend to wake up starving.  But today I did one, and that had a boiled egg.  Good combo. 
 
What should I do with it next time?  What are your favorite combinations to put in oats?  Have you tried these before?  Did you like them?  Let me know below!  Have a great day :)

  1. Hi! So I really don't like oatmeal because of the glue-like texture. Do steel-cut oats have that same texture?

    1. Steel cut oats seem to have a lot more texture, and not the glue-like smooth type texture you get from other oatmeal. Even these instant steel cut oats seem to be much different from like a regular instant. Let me know if you give them a try! :)
