    :dunno:

    I've been having rolled all my life and heard a lot about steel cut. What advantage do they have over rolled (besides more calories, which I need :yum:)?

    Steel cut oats look like roughly-ground wheat; they cook up more nutty and chewy. I eat both them and instant oats, I don't worry about the difference since it's negligible.

    I like the taste of Steel cut better, but the price of rolled (and availability) is way better around here

    if you're trying to consume a bunch of calories, why would you choose oatmeal

    Equal amounts weight-wise of rolled and steel-cut oats are going to be almost exactly the same calorie-wise anyways.

    If you need more calories (lucky bastard) add some peanut butter+ whey to it.

    Steel cut oats are fucking annoying to cook or grind up for shakes. I vote rolled.
