- Nutritional value: Steel-cut oats (like all oats!) are a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including iron and magnesium.
- Low GI: They have a lower glycemic index than rolled oats, which means they can help regulate blood sugar levels and keep you feeling full for longer.
- Texture and taste: Steel-cut oats have a satisfying chewy texture and nutty flavour that many people prefer over the softer consistency of rolled oats. They also hold up well when cooked, making them a great option for meal prep or make-ahead breakfasts.
- Versatility: Steel-cut oats can be used in a variety of dishes beyond just oatmeal, such as savoury grain bowls, baked goods, and even as a substitute for rice in dishes like risotto. This versatility makes them a great addition to any pantry.
