I was so excited to try them this morning. When I opened the top though, I was surprised. They were smaller than I expected. For some reason I was expecting them to be granola-chunk size or something. I was also a little worried that the serving size was a 1/4c. I currently eat 1c. old fashioned oats (2 servings) every morning. I wasn't sure 1/2c. steel-cut would be enough!
Cooking... my witch's brew:
The container said it would take 30 minutes. Mine were ready in about 20. This made me extra happy, since I'm impatient and even more impatient when it comes to hunger and breakfast.
Into the bowl!
Thankfully 1/2c. steel-cut bulked up to my normal oatmeal portion size. Yay!
With my favorite apple pie toppings: yogurt, applesauce, cinnamon:
I loved how the oats were just slightly chewy. YUM. I wolfed them down.
An empty oats bowl is a sad, sad thing. The old-fashioned oats I have left are being relegated to cooking... or when I need a speedster breakfast. Steel-cut oats are my new oat love, for sure.
On deck for today: shower, kindergarten classroom, Kroger, deciding and making dinner, reading time, and hanging out with Dave! Happy Wednesday!
