Steel Cut Oat Freezer Pucks

Pin It
The holidays are over so it's get back on track time for me!
Healthy eating, exercise and remembering to take my vitamins are my goals for least until the end of January :)

I know you all are probably tired of all of my oatmeal posts, but I LOVE it and this is my little blog, so here ya go.....another oat recipe.  Well it's not really a recipe, just a way I prepare Steel Cut oats so that I can have a healthy breakfast each morning in about 3 minutes. 

Maybe this post will inspire you and we can start our own Oatmeal Lovers Club :)

You can purchase Steel Cut Oats from most grocery stores.  Bob's Red Mill is a good brand.  Most of the time I buy it from a bulk food store in our local Farmer's Market.  I find it is a lot less expensive there.

Steel Cut Oat Freezer Pucks
1 cup Steel Cut Oats
3 cups water
dash of salt

Bring water and salt to a boil. Add oats and then simmer on low for about 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.  Let the oats cool slightly.
Spoon oats into a muffin pan...mine makes extra large muffins which will yield 5 oat pucks.
Place muffin pan into your freezer.  You may want to place it on a cookie sheet to keep it level.
I leave mine in the freezer overnight to make sure they are frozen solid.

Once they are frozen place about an inch of hot water into your sink.
Let the bottom of the muffin pan soak in the water for a couple of minutes.
Use a knife around the edge to pop them out of the pan.

Place frozen pucks in a Ziploc freezer bag to store them and pull one out when you are ready for breakfast.

Place frozen oat puck into a microwaveable bowl.
Heat for 2 minutes on high.  Stir and heat in 30 second increments until heated through.
Top with a touch of brown sugar, walnuts, dried cranberries and almond milk or whatever you prefer.

I found this idea on New Nostalgia.


  1. Ohhh, my. I love this idea of making them ahead and freezing them!

  2. This is absolutely FABULOUS and perfect for me ~ Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. THANK YOU for this idea! I made some up yesterday and brought the pucks to work! How easy it was to pop in microwave this morning!
