Where to purchase Steel Cut Oats

Today you can find steel cut oats in most grocery stores in the organic or the cereal section.
You also can find them in healthy stores, and places like wholefoods, wild oats and trader Joe's.

I use "Organic Steel Cut Oats, Hot cereal" by Arrowhead Mills because I believe it's the only one with 8 grams of fiber per one serving.
You can google arrowheamills.com and click on store locator for the stores nearest you.

***************************

WHAT ARE STEEL CUT OATS?

Steel-Cut Oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into only two or three pieces. They are golden in color and resemble mini rice particles.

How are they different from Rolled Oats?
Rolled oats are flake oats that have been steamed, rolled, re-steamed and toasted. Due to all of this additional processing they have lost some of their natural taste, goodness and texture.

What makes Steel-cut Oats so special?
Grains are essential to a healthy lifestyle and form the foundation of the food pyramid Steel-cut oats are inherently full of nutritional value and are high in B-Vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber while low in salt and unsaturated fat. One cup of steel-cut oatmeal contains more fiber than a bran muffin and twice as much fibre as Cream of Wheat.

SLOW COOKER STEEL CUT OATS WITH APPLES AND PEARS

Quick and easy to prepare!

COOK AHEAD for the whole week! (especially if you're in a hurry in the morning)

Take it to work and heat it up. you'll be less hungry during the day.


Absolutely DELICIOUS!
I eat it every day once or more, for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

2 points per cup following the recipe as is.


NOTES!
1. you can make a smaller amount.
2. The amount of water has to be 4 times the amount of oats.
Example:
For 1/2 cup steel cut oats, use 2 cups water
3. This recipe makes enough for the whole week.
4. You may add raisens, dates, dried crunberrie, or other dried fruits, if you wish, while counting your points(calories).
Check Trader Joe's for wonderful selection of dried fruits.
5. I like to eat it hot with vanilla soyslender milk (you can use skim milk)
6. You may add pinch of ground cardemon, cloves, pumpkin spice......
7. It fills you up (HIGH FIBER: 8 grams per 1/4 cup dry steel cut oats plus high fiber in apple and pears)
8. I add splenda to taste and 1 TBS. of DaVinchi sugar free, fat free syrup (0 calories per 1 TBS.)
9. I add (for additional points) 1 cup berries
(I buy frozen berries at Trader Joe's)
11. It's also great with 2 TBS. FF (or low fat) cottage cheese
12. YUMMY with 1-2 tsp. low fat PEANUT BUTTER (for additional points)!!!


INGREDIENTS

4 small pears, peeled, seeded, and diced
4 smallapples, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats (I like the organic Steel Cut Oats Hot Cereal by Arrohead Mills)
6 cups water (or up to 7 cups water)

OTHER IDEAS FROM OTHER WW MEMBERS!

3 1/2 cups skim milk
3 1/2 cups water
2 cups steel cut oats
2 cinnamon sticks

Cook on low 4 hours

****************************************
**************************************

If you don't want to do it in the crockpot:
1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water

pour water and steel cut oats into large saucepan, bring to rolling boil, cover, remove from heat and let sit a few hours (or overnight) until water is absorbed.
When the majority of the water is absorbed, I add cinnamon then divide up into small bowls for easy reheating during the week.

You can add bananas or spiced apples before you reheat.
You also can add 1 tsp of oil and some sf coffee flavoring at this time, along with a splash of fat free milk.
