It works.

I make four servings of steel cut oats at a time. I use the dry measurement since all I ever add is water. I then weigh the final product in grams then divide by four to get my 'serving size' that equates with the dry measurements. I make sure each portion is this gram measurement. For me it was the easiest way to make sure I was getting the correct counts.

It will be difficult to find accurate nutritional information on cooked steel cut oats because while I might like my steel cut oats very thick with very little 'soup', but you might prefer yours with more liquid. Therefore the 1 cup of dry oats I start with will yield a smaller volume of cooked oats than you might get cooked to your preference. Make sense? You will get a more accurate calorie count if you start with the dry measure.

As a rule of thumb, 1 cup of steel cut oats will yield 3 cups cooked, but again, it depends on your preferences.

The directions show how to make 4 servings (1 cup oats to 2 cups water). If you make that, and create 4 servings from it, you'll have 1 serving= 150 calories= 1/4 cup dry.

I just made 4 servings earlier today, which gives me 4 quick breakfasts for this week.

I use McCanns and it can be confusing. (But oh so delicious.
I entered it as follows
1 cup
150 calories
2.5 fat
27 carbs
4 protein
Hope this helps!

measure it out. make just the 1/4 cup, and if that yield is one cup you have your answer. write down your yield and you can just use that info later on if you change the amount.

many products are badly declared I don't purchase anything that I have to look on the internet for..

Food declarations in denmark demand.

nutrition pr. 100 grams..

the calories/ carbs have to be declared

the protein value
the carbs value
the fat
and fiber etc...

I enter all my foods manually by the values of 100 grams.. I weigh and measure my foods- this gives me correct values I can use..

If a item doesn't have a declaration in order of items used to make it I will also not buy it.. the ingredients should be listed with the items the product contains most of and down wards from here..

I've been looking all over the internet and am very confused! what is the calorie count for cooked steel cup oats? I have been eating 1 cup cooked and people online have been saying its 150 to 300 calories....I would love to know for sure

I am using McCanns regular steel cut oats and the directions say 1 cup oats to 4 cups water and that 1/4 cup of oats equals 150 i am assuming its really 150 cals for one cup? But if anyone could clarify this I would appreciate it!
