Lizzie, the steel cut oats are less processed, so they supposedly don't cause your blood sugar to spike as much. I started eating them when I was trying to do the "Zone" diet. They seem to fill me up so much more than other oats and I love the way they taste. I also stir in some wheat germ and ground flax seeds, a tsp. of brown sugar and a tiny bit of milk. It's also good with raisins added.
My grocery store has them in the health food aisle made by Bob's Red Mill and I've also seen them in some stores by the regular oats. Quaker makes them now too so they are getting easier to find.
I've never tried the crockpot version - this just seemed easier and has worked really well for us.
