Our family’s traditional oatmeal recipe is not only ultra-nutritious, it has no added sugar, is great for weight-loss and is enriched with the best flavors of sweet-spice aromatic qualities of nutmeg, cinnamon and more.
My husband started making this as a healthy breakfast alternative for us . Yes, it is easy enough for your husband to make it, I am fortunate that my hubby knows how to cook every dish and enjoys cooking for his family as and when time permits .
Oatmeal : The King of breakfast table
Oatmeal or rather Oats show up in different forms on the breakfast table at home and at restaurants in muffins, pancakes, granola bars and much more.
You must have consumed oats in the form of either instant oats, rolled oats or steel cut oats and might be wondering which one is better and why ?
It all depends on how much the Oat groat has been processed.
Instant oats have the least cook time and it has become a choice for very many people .Just because it is instant or quick oats does not mean it is a healthy choice.
Rolled oats are usually used in baked goods like muffins, granola bars etc and take a little longer to cook than Instant oats.
STEEL CUT OATS take the longest to cook and have a more textured flavor. Basically , these are the healthiest of all the oats since the oat groats do not undergo intense processing , instead the oat groats are just cut into 2-3 pieces unlike rolled and instant oats that undergo steaming and rolling process for easy cooking.
In my nutrition plan for my clients , instant oatmeal is a NO-NO . You don’t need the added sugar and sodium . Steel-cut oats would be a great option. Oats fall under the gluten-free category but they are not grain-free. The outer husk in steel-cut oats adds that extra fiber you might need for your daily fiber intake.
