The Mysteries of Steelcut Oats

First of all, Steelcut Oats are by far the healthiest, because they are less processed than rolled oats. Primarily, they are much lower on the glycemic index. The cooking time is slightly longer, but that is no problem if you use a rice cooker or an Instant Pot.

So, if it is healthier, I want it and so do all the other Whole Foods, Plant-based eaters.

My standard breakfast is steelcut oats with shredded apple (green apples preferred) a bit of raisins, lots of cinnamon, and whatever berries I can find, usually always at least blueberries, but I love strawberries on top, like I did recently:

And now for the mystery: shopping for steelcut oats.

Here's what I found:
  • Local, at Key Foods on Union Port. Quaker Oats, Steelcut Oats, 30 Oz, $6.19 or 20.63 cents/Oz.
  • Downtown healthfood store, in bulk, $1.69/lb, or 10.56 cents/Oz.
  • Quaker Oats, 30 Oz/$3.69 in Amazon Prime Pantry
  • Bob's Red Mill 54 Oz Steelcut Oats, $15.74, or 29 cents/Oz.
  • Bob's Red Mill 4x24 Oz. bags, ranging from $0.15-$0.25/Oz.
  • Bobś Red Mill 25 lb bag at $1.99/lb. or 12.44 cents/Oz.
 So, take your pick and enjoy the oat meal. It remains the breakfast of champions.
