When I saw the overnight oatmeal recipes on Pinterest, some of the recipes asked for steel cut oatmeal. I had no idea what the difference was. Bought some, tried it. Liked it! Let me show you the difference with pictures!
The steel cut oatmeal is a little chewier than the old fashioned. It is also much more expensive. My 1 pound, 12 ounce container (a cool tin), was about $10.00. But, as you know with oatmeal, a little goes a long way. It’s healthy and less processed. I love the packaging. It is sealed in a can which I know I need to find a use for, ’cause I won’t want to throw it out.
A friend mentioned you can buy steel cut oatmeal in the bulk section of your grocery store. This may be the way to try it before you commit to a larger quantity.
Try them both! If you’d like to try making my no cook overnight oatmeal try it with both types of oatmeal to see which one you and your family prefer.
