Steel cut oats are not as processed as the other oats….they take longer to digest and have a lower glycemic index (sugar) and slightly more fiber….so make keep you feeling fuller longer . I always use steel cut…prefer the texture….and make enough for 3 or 4 days also. I think quick oats are the most processed type. If you try steel cut…don’t use the quick type. The only time I use regular processed oats are in some muffin recipes.
I think you will like the texture of steel cut better…it’s not mushy….just make sure to cook it long enough. I get mine in bulk at Sprouts. So yes, it is a little healthier.
That sounds like a delicious and easy breakfast. I have used steel oats, I'm not sure about whether or not they are healthier. They have a different texture and take a long time to cook. Here is an article that you might find interesting from Medical News Today. It compares the two, https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/rolled-vs-steel-cut-oats#how-to-choose.
Gema, have you made other diet changes with respect to your PBC diagnosis?
