What are the benefits of steel-cut oats?
What happens if you eat oatmeal every day?
- 1 2/3 cups steel-cut oats
- 4 cups water
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 ml Cinnamon
- ½ cup dried cranberries – add when you turn the heat off
- 1 cup Yogurt - As topping
- ½ cup Raisins or other dried fruit - As topping
- ¼ cup Fresh berries - As topping
- ¼ cup Nuts or seeds - As topping
Bring the oats, water, salt and cinnamon to a boil.
Simmer for about 5-10 minutes (depending on the consistency you like) then turn off the heat and add the dried cranberries and let is cool down.
Divide the oatmeal between the 5 jars.
Let stand, uncovered, at room temperature for about an hour or until cool to the touch, then cap and refrigerate or as I have done, place in the freezer.
I usually take a jar out of the freezer and place it on the counter the evening prior to going to work in the morning, then quickly add my optional mix-ins into the jar, and off I go to work, with a yummy and delicious and hearty breakfast.
I usually add some nuts, yogurt and frozen fruit.

For this reason, steel cut oats may be the best choice for those looking for better control of their blood sugar. Steel cuts oats are slightly higher in fiber than rolled and quick oats. They also have the lowest glycemic index of the three types of oats, potentially making them the best choice for blood sugar control.

I am using this and the only issue I have is that I did not start earlier! 😢 This is a fantastic feature and plugin, to have on your blog when you share recipes. Your recipe has a set structure and Google loves it. Would you like it and have Google include it and show it as a search result when someone searches for a recipe? Yes OR No?
My guess would be that you will answer YES to the above. For that reason alone, it’s highly beneficial to use the WP Tasty plugin!
You can type it out in the body of your post, but having a recipe card that’s aesthetically pleasing and when laid out for sure has a benefit in that it will keep your readers on your page longer to read the full recipe and hopefully leave a comment and try your recipe. Tasty Links
