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.
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 calories....so i am assuming its really 150 cals for one cup? But if anyone could clarify this I would appreciate it!
