I love oatmeal. It is a great breakfast that stays with you all morning and keeps those hunger pangs at bay. My favorite brand is Silver Palate Rough Cut Oats. I sometimes make it with milk, sometimes with unsweetened almond milk; I sometimes add blueberries or banana; I sometimes add a tablespoon of peanut or almond butter. The possibilities are endless!
But tomorrow, I am going to step it up a notch and try the steel cut oats that so many have raved about here at SP. At first, I was put off by the longer cooking time and used that as an excuse. But Trader Joe's solved that problem. It carries steel cut oats that cook in 8 minutes. That is more my speed. Another friend was raving about this, so I made a point of buying it and tomorrow I will try it. I will be interested to see how it compares to my old favorite!
