Steal cut oatmeal is nutritionally superior but can be time consuming. These muffins make steal cut oats easy, fun, and are perfect for the oatmeal enthusiast! Whether gearing up for a hike, bike ride, or a long day at the office, these will provide lasting energy and a powerful nutritional boost. These are also great made in a large batch and frozen for later.
