Breakfast is the most challenging of meals. Between checking e-mail, getting ready for the day and shooing kids out the door for school, this early-morning meal is usually the first thing to fall by the wayside.
Finding the time is tough, we know, but these steel-cut oats recipes are so worth it. Steel-cut oats are less processed than rolled or quick oats and they have a low glycemic index, so they're guaranteed to fill you up. Plus, their versatility means breakfast is never boring. You can mix in some cinnamon or top your bowl with baked fruit and a drizzle of almond butter. The possibilities are endlessly delicious. (And we like to make a big batch ahead of time to pack up in mason jars and grab on the go.)
Here are 17 steel-cut oat recipes that will make you weirdly excited to wake up.
