Cooking Oats for breakfast is a healthy alternative for many. With cooler weather over the autumn and winter, its best to move away from colder breakfasts to warm breakfasts like cooked steel cut / pin-head oats. Health Benefits: Pinhead Oats are nutritionally similar to other forms of oats. However pinhead Oats are different from quick or rolled Oats, in that the cooked pinhead oats release carbohydrates slowly into the bloodstream. While pinhead Oats take a bit longer to cook, their low glycemic index means that they do not cause any sharp increases in the blood sugar levels and you’ll stay full for a little while longer.
Sumptuous Pin-head Oats - Secrets to making a perfect bowl every time
1. Cook Pinhead Oats for longer. Add one part pinhead Oats in a pan and add water to the same level. A good 20 minutes cooking and simmering time ensures you get the best-textured oatmeal and all the water would have been absorbed.
2. Add more liquid if necessary. If you prefer, add milk or non-dairy milk (almond, cashew or coconut) at the end.
3. For flavour, add non-sugar flavour boosters! You may wish to add a little vanilla extract or cinnamon to boost the flavour and to give a bit of sweetness without having to add sugar.
Though this simple recipe produces great tasting oatmeal breakfast, I usually add nutritious toppings. Here are some ideas from my counter-top! • Amazing with fresh or dried cherries • Sliced bananas • Bit of Honey • Pure Maple Syrup • Pecans • Almonds • Frozen berries • Raisins • Flax Seed • And..many more berries or chopped nuts and dried fruits!!
