What Are Pinhead Oats?

These pinhead oats (also known as steel-cut oats or oatmeal) are whole oats which have been chopped into two or three pinhead-sized pieces. 

This is one step before they are processed into rolled (porridge) oats. Due to a lack of processing, they have a chewier, coarser texture and nuttier flavour than other oats. 

They also take longer to digest and release energy so they're a terrific start to the day.

I personally like to mix some in with my porridge oats. I don't bother with soaking or cooking them longer. I like the contrast in texture!

Cooking Pinhead Oats

These pinhead oats are traditionally used to make porridge. However, as they are less processed they typically take 15–30 minutes to cook. This can be reduced by pre-soaking. 

Thanks to their signature nutty flavour and chewy texture (more so than oats further down the process line) they also make great additions to baking, stews, smoothies and salads.

Delicious and nutritious breakfast

As one of the least processed type of oats available, these are an especially nutritious breakfast option. We add these to our regular porridge oats for an added bite. The quality is exceptional and as these aren't always easy to find without plastic, we're really happy that they're available here.
