I don't claim to be an expert at most things. But this? I know steel cut oats. And I definitely know the cookies that come after the oats.
Steel cut oats take a long time to prepare, usually 45 minutes to and hour. I do NOT like standing at the stove for an hour stirring and waiting and stirring and waiting. Follow this tip to change your steel cut oat game. I don't remember where I heard it many years ago when I first started cooking oats (Maybe in the book Nourishing Traditions?) but I'll never forget this simple solution.

I'm excited to include these video instructions as well, because sometimes, you just need a visual! These were all broadcast live on Periscope, so you may see some interaction with viewers thrown into the instruction, but all the good info is still in there.
Steel cut oats are good for you, inexpensive, and even if you don't love oatmeal, the cookies that follow the oats are the bomb. I love making something that all my kids love. They all love oatmeal, and they love these cookies. They are an excellent option for an after school snack, a quick breakfast, or a late night snack made from whole ingredients instead of junk.
It's really the best part of YouTube videos, getting to see the weird faces that pop up on your thumbnail. I guess 1 out of 5 isn't too bad ;)
If you made it all the way through to the end, I'm super mega impressed! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by Hearth and Caravan to learn about making oats. Please leave your questions or comments here or find me @hearth_caravan on Twitter, Instagram, and Periscope and here on Facebook. I would love to hear if you make steel cut oats regularly, or if this post has inspired you to start doing so!
It's a joy to have you here!
