Overnight Steel Cut Oats- Two Methods


Steel cut oats are less processed than rolled oats and are a great source of fiber, protein and are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The downside of steel cut oats for me anyway, is they take a long time to cook in the morning, and the pan gets really messy. Enter, the two best short cuts ever! Overnight steel cut oats stove top method and the just mix and cover method. 
Oatmeal does not have to be boring, sure it is easy to get into an oatemal rut with the same old banana abd blueberries, but experiement more!  Here are some flavor combos you might like. : )
* Apple, cinnamon and walnut
* Cherries, caco powder, and almonds
* Peanut butter, banana, and caco nibs
* Pineapple, coconut and dried mango
