I have been challenged trying to cook steel cut oats in the microwave, but finally found a small mixing bowl that will not boil it over. I have learned to avoid butter, milk and sugar. I use a banana and blueberries to sweeten it and cinnamon for zest.
I love steel cut oats. I tried the recipe above, and compared it to following basic cooking directions. (Basic boiling water and oats) with brown sugar/cinnamon. I can scarcely tell any difference. It's back to basic and less calories for me --tho this was very good.
This was a little time-consuming to make due to the cook time of the oats, but boy was it delicious! I actually ate 2 servings (2 c.) and added 1/2 a medium banana and one Tbs. of organic chunky peanut butter. Yummy!
