Let’s play ball on day 37 of 210 of no sweets
Steel cut vs rolled oats
Sounds like a football match! Well, it is!
Yes. And I unashamedly suit up for I the

But, I, lover of oatmeal this morning gave the steel cut a try because I’d thought maybe they’d be healthier.
First off, what’s the difference?
The rolled oats are creamy and the steel cut are kinda nutty/chewy.
