This steel cut oatmeal recipe is a tasty mixture of steel cut oats, brown sugar, walnuts and bananas. What makes this Crockpot oatmeal even better is that the whole recipe can be made the night before, and the oatmeal will be ready when you wake up in the morning.
Yes, you can always use instant. But food editor Margo True swears by steel-cut: "I love it because it has a chewier texture than instant or ordinary rolled oats and a deep, nutty flavor." It also freezes well (add the fruit after defrosting), so make a big batch on the weekend.
This oatmeal-meets-muffin-tin cake recipe is perfect for having a healthy breakfast available on busy weekdays. Make a batch on the weekend and keep them in your freezer. For a grab-and-go breakfast, reheat the oatmeal cakes in the microwave for about 40 seconds.
Heather says: Don't let the idea of toasting pecans scare you away from this recipe. Simply scatter pecans on a baking sheet and place in a 300F oven for 5 -? 7 minutes, stirring once. Be careful not to leave
These are wonderful and are almost too healthy to be true. Lots of calcium, protein, fiber, etc. I usually eat them without any topping and just keep popping them in my mouth! Yum. But a good jam will do them nicely as well.
