Steel Cut Oats, A Video Tutorial

This morning I made Steel Cut Oats Cereal for Breakfast.  

Steel Cut Oats, Cinnamon Rolls, and Raspberry MuffinsI also baked Raspberry Muffins, and A batch of Cinnamon Rolls made from Spelt and Red Wheat with Golden Flax Seeds. The beauty of cooking with whole grains is truly manifested in the “live food” aspect of the food.  If I were to take the Oat Groats out in the garden and plant them, they would grow!  The “seed” portion of the grain is in tact until it is cut, which is why store bought Steel Cut Oats are mostly a waste of money.  Although steel cut oats are perhaps one of the best things you can purchase in the cereal isle of the grocery store, any time a seed is cut in half, within 12 hours the germ/seed which contains the most oils in the plant, start to go rancid.  This is the reason why it is so ideal to grind your grains right before you cook.  And eat your grains right after you grind them up.

Recipes are below:

Steel Cut Oats

2 C Water

1/3 C Whole Oat Groats

1 tsp Golden Flaxseed

1 tsp Sea Salt

Put the water, flax, and salt into a pan and hard boil for five minutes
Turn the heat down and slowly add the freshly ground whole oat groats to the water. (I use my spice mill to quickly grind the oats right before cooking)
Cook on low for twenty minutes!

Raspberry Muffins

3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 c White Flour
1/4 c dried raspberries
