Perfect steel-cut oats breakfast

I discovered steel-cut oat in a cafe in San Francisco and loved it, so I thought I would share with you this hearty and satisfying breakfast. It is a bowl of steel-cut oats, packed with fibre and essential nutrients.
Please note that steel-cut oats are less processed so they will take longer to cook, you might want to try this recipe on a weekend or when you're on vacation.
