Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe Collection

A collection of steel cut oatmeal recipes including refrigerator oats, overnight oats, slow cooker, fruit-filled and chocolate versions. 

27 Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipes - The Lemon Bowl


Steel cut oats have a special place in my heart. From the minute I could hold a spoon, I have been eating steel cut oatmeal. My beautiful mother made them for me and my sisters on a very regular basis along with buckwheat pancakes, shredded wheat or cream of wheat.

As an adult, I now crave the chewy, nutty texture of steel cut oats. Don’t get me wrong, I love old fashioned oats as well but there is just something extra special about taking the time to prepare steel cut oats in all of their whole grain, un-rolled glory. 

In honor of Bob’s Red Mill Spar for the Spurtle contest, I thought I would inspire you to get in the kitchen with a collection of steel cut oatmeal recipes. Whether you prefer cold, overnight refrigerator oats or making a big batch in the slow cooker or any version in between, this collection is sure to get you hungry.

    Why Oatmeal is always sweet? I love salty Oatmeal pancakes, waffle and tortillas served with veggies. Must try for weight loss.

    Hey Liz, these are amazing varieties. I got that overnight oatmeal recipe first from Jack’s show on youtube. He used milk and/or yogurt and added in some mango bits. I did it myself with mango and banana bits overload, and oh boy was it so good.
