Breakfast Inspiration: Steel Cut Oats

We all need an effortless morning once in a while (says the girl writing a blog post at 11pm), and having steel cut oats for breakfast is one of my favorite ways to ease into the day.  If you’re looking for a new idea — or a new take on an old one — prep your steel cut oats the night before, so all you need to do is heat them up after you start the coffee!  And if you’re like me and wondering if steel cut oats are any better for you than regular old Quaker oats, the answer is…no.  Both stack up the same, from a health and an environmental perspective.  But from a yumminess perspective, I vote for steel cut all the way…ideally topped with blueberries, slivered almonds, and a touch of honey.

How do you like yours?  Do you have any ninja breakfast secrets that make your mornings easy and delish?

  1. I really like the overnight oats. My favorite is to top it off with honey, cinnamon, walnuts and banana or strawberries. So good!

    Given that some say that I am at least 30% oatmeal because I consume so much of it per week…I loved this post. My personal favorite oatmeal combination = add cinnamon, banana…and/or vanilla extract. Have a beautiful day Brynn!

    Cool. I never tried preparing them the night before. I’ll try that sometime.

    fyi, Andrew Weil does think that Steel Cut Oats are better: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400705/Why-Steel-Cut-Oatmeal.html

  5. My only breakfast secret is to buy the “protein box” at Starbucks that comes with apples and a hardboiled egg. BUT… these steel cut oats look amaze!

    • I hope you’re wearing that cute legging/skirt combo while you eat your protein box!
