Steel Cut Oats


Steel cut oats are whole oat groats that have been cut into small pieces on a steel burr mill rather than being rolled flat. They are the basis for traditional Irish or Scottich porridge (oatmeal) and have been a hearty and filling breakfast for hundreds of years.

Our oats are a good source of iron and dietary fiber and contain 7% DV of thiamine, which is a critical nutrient to energy metabolism. Interestingly, the soluble fiber in oats attaches to cholesterol molecules and transports them out of the body rather than being absorbed into the bloodstream, which can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. As a low glycemic food, incorporating oatmeal made with regular rolled oats as a consistent part of one’s diet can also help stabilize blood sugar and weight (by helping you feel fuller longer), which can lower the risk of diabetes or help control the condition.

Cooking Instructions

Use our steel cut oats as instructed in recipes, or follow these directions to make quick and filling breakfast oatmeal:

3 (1 c.) servings = 3 cups water + 1 cup milk + 1 cup steel cut oats + ¼ tsp. salt (optional)

Bring water and milk to a boil in a medium-size, heavy-bottomed pot. Add oats and salt (if using), reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 20-30 minutes, depending on how creamy you like it. Toward the end of cooking time, reduce heat to low and stir very frequently to prevent scorching. Remove from heat, cover, and let rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy topped with maple syrup, fresh fruit, yogurt, almond butter, Farmer Direct Co-op Hulled Hempseed or Milled Flaxseed, or any combination thereof.

Storage

Oats readily absorb odors, so for long-term storage, it’s recommended to store oats in an airtight glass container. Keep in a cool, dry place for 6 months (or up to 1 year if stored at less than 75 degrees F).
