“Steel-cut oats are larger than ordinary rolled oats because they're cut into pieces rather than being rolled. If you've never had them, try this breakfast recipe.”


    • 3 cups water
    • 1 cup steel-cut oats
    • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute equivalent to 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar (see Tips)
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground allspice
    • Dash ground cloves or ground nutmeg
    • 3 cups fat-free milk


  • 1 In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the water, steel-cut oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, allspice, and cloves or nutmeg.
  • 2 Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until desired doneness and consistency, stirring occasionally. Serve with milk.
  • Tip: If using a brown sugar substitute, we recommend Sweet 'n Low(R) Brown or Sugar Twin(R) Granulated Brown. Use 1- ½ teaspoons Sweet 'n Low(R) Brown or 1 tablespoon Sugar Twin(R) Granulated Brown in place of the packed brown sugar.
