Homestyle Steel Cut Oats
Homestyle Steel Cut Oats are a healthy, delicious easy way to start your day off right. Steel cut oats are whole grain oats that instead of being rolled, are dried and cut into pieces with steel. Look for them in the bulk foods section of your grocery store. Steel cut oats do take longer to cook than rolled oats, but their texture is worth the wait. Chewy and a little bit crunchy…No mushiness here!
