Here is the quick and easy way to make steel oats. If you don't cook them the night before (for 1 minute, like the recipe says), and decide to cook it during the day, from start to finish it takes 40 minutes of cooking time. Compared to the one minute of cooking the night before, it'd be wise to plan ahead and make it before you go to bed. In our family, this recipe will usually last for several days. If you have a smaller family, you might want to reduce the ingredients and cook 1/2 c steel oats in 2 c water.
Steel Cut Oatmeal
4 c water
1 c steel oats
Combine in a large saucepan and boil for one minute. Cover and let sit overnight. In the morning boil for a few minutes if needed(mine has never needed this extra boiling time).
Optional additions for a bowl of oatmeal: pinch of stevia, agave, fruit, chia seeds, dried shredded unsweetened coconut, milk(any kind), wheat germ etc
