4 recipes in 1! Steel-cut oats are named for the steel blades that chop whole oat groats into pieces. Although they take a little longer to prepare than regular rolled oats, steel-cut oats are chewier, nuttier, and higher in soluble fibre (which is great and gentle for your gut).
For a basic dairy-free breakfast, power up your steel cut oats by adding Holy Crap Apple Cinnamon cereal. Then add yogurt (for protein and a creamy texture) or fresh fruit (for a good dose of vitamins and antioxidants) or both yogurt and fresh fruit (for maximum nutrition and even more flavour).
Any of these combinations will keep you energized all morning long. Two of our favourite topping combinations are fresh-picked blueberries and sliced bananas or tangy raspberries and apricots.
