Gut Nourishing Steel Cut Oats


This recipe for Gut Nourishing Steel Cut Oats incorporates many of the dietary tips mentioned in Selva’s column about Gut Bacteria that was published in the December 2018 Co-op News.

Cooked and cooled steel-cut oats have a higher amount of resistant starch and are high in mucilaginous fiber. Blueberries, flaxseeds, and cinnamon provide a great source of polyphenols (as well as fiber). The optional yogurt provides a food-based source of probiotics. Each serving provides 11 grams of fiber! Enjoy after a workout, as a fiber-rich breakfast, or simply as a snack.
