Perfect Overnight Steel Cut Oats

5 from 5 reviews

Overnight steel-cut oats made perfect without a slow cooker. Toast the oats first for better flavor, they sit overnight then it’s all about the toppings!




  1. Measure water into a medium sauce pan with a lid and bring to a rapid boil. (I like to use my 2.75 qt dutch oven.)
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium low heat in the cast iron skillet. Add the steel cut oats and toast until they’re darker in color and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  3. When the water has come to a rapid boil, add the steel cut oats and salt and stir. Set the timer for 1 minute and allow the oats to cook.
  4. When the timer goes off, cover the oats and turn off the stove. Set the oats aside until morning.
  5. In the morning, reheat the oats until they are the desired temperature and top with desired toppings.
