3. Steel Cut Oats
Nowadays, oats are available in many different forms. From instant oats to rolled oats and steel cut oats, you can enjoy this breakfast staple in a variety of ways. And, even if they are almost all the same when it comes to nutritional value, steel cut oats deserve the crown mainly because of their fiber content and density.
“Steel cut oats raise blood sugar less than rolled oats and have more health benefits due to the way they are processed. Steel cut oats are never cooked and start from the whole grain that is passed through sharp, steel blades that cut the oats into thin slices. This helps the oats retain more fiber and protein and provides a dense and hearty texture, so I find them more satisfying than a bowl of instant or traditional oats,” says Elkin.
