I love steel cut oats, but found that they took longer to cook than I usually had time for in the mornings, so I kind of just gave up on using them. But when I got a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats I knew I wanted to make them for my breakfast. I love adding in things like chia seeds, flax, protein, and delicious mix ins for a fun, healthy, and easy to make breakfast. And Bob’s Red Mill has the best products. So I started experimenting with ways to make my breakfast quick, easy, and hassle free. And this Berry Banana Steel Cut Oats recipe is what I came up with. By making it in my rice cooker, it takes only a couple minutes of my time, and I get a creamy, delicious, consistency, and can add whatever I want in.
These oats are the quick cook kind, and so they are ready in 7 minutes, and by putting them in the rice cooker, I don’t have to think about them at all. Then I can top them whatever way I wish. I stirred in a little milk to make them extra creamy, and added the berries and bananas.

Steel Cut Oats Cooking Tips:
- Get Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats: Steel cut oats can take over 30 minutes to cook, make it faster by getting the quick cook version from Bob’s Red Mill.
- Use a Rice Cooker with automatic settings: The rice cooker should shut off on it’s own when the liquid is absorbed. This one, for example, requires you to only push down a lever, and it will automatically stop when the oats, or rice, are cooked.
- Mix some milk or cream into them after cooking to give them an even creamier consistency.
- Top with your favorite mix-ins.
