Steel-cut oats make for a fibre-rich meal.

The Problem: You want a healthy and filling breakfast in the morning, but you’re crunched for time in the a.m.

The Hack: We know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but time is of the essence when trying to get out the door in the morning. Steel-cut oats are a comforting, fibre-rich and filling breakfast, but aren’t so quick to whip up, and instant doesn’t quite compare taste or nutrient-wise. However, with a little meal prep you can have steel-cut oats ready in no time. Make a batch up in advance, scoop mixture into a small or large muffin tin, and freeze for a few hours. Pop the frozen oatmeal out of the tin and refreeze in a large freezer bag. When you need brekkie in a hurry, grab 2-3 from the freezer, pop in a bowl and microwave for a few minutes.
