Someone like me benefits the most from a thoughtfully planned breakfast. The alternatives often are granola bars and cold cereal. I never find those satisfying.
Steel-cut oats are satisfying. However, cooking them on the stove is impractical. I don’t know why it took me so long to turn to our rice cooker. It yields consistently good results. It also saves times because I can load it the night before and have it auto-start in the morning.

Steel-cut oats in a rice cooker
I’ve scaled everything against the oats. However, the fundamental ratio is between oats and water. Everything else you should adjust to your tastes. I find 80 grams of oats is a good place to start.
- Steel-cut oats: 100%
- Water: 450%
- Butter: 20%
- Dried strawberries: 25%
- Salt: 2%
- Honey: 50%
- Pour all ingredients into the rice cooker.
- Turn on the rice cooker. If your rice cooker has a programmable start feature, you can use that as well.
- When cooking is complete, thin with water (or some dairy product) as necessary. Correct seasoning.
