Question Irish Oatmeal (steel cut) Muffins - recipe needed

Hello!

I have Irish Oatmeal (steel cut oats) and I was needing a recipe for Irish Oatmeal muffins. I used to eat some in a restaurant. They added seasonal berries at the time, and sometimes applesauce.

This is different than regular oatmeal.

Any help with how to make a muffin with Irish Oatmeal, would be
greatly appreciated!

Jen

Just wondered if you ever found a recipe for muffins using the steel cut oats? I have been looking around for one myself and no luck!

... and this is what I found.
Steel-Cut Oats - We get steel-cut oats when the whole groat is split into several pieces. Simmered with water, steel-cut oats retain much of their shape and make a chewy, nutty tasting porridge. Substitute: Whole Oat Groats
Rolled Oats - Whole grains of oats can also be steamed to make them soft and pliable, and then pressed between rollers and dried. The resulting "rolled oats" re-absorb water and cook much more quickly than whole groats or steel-cut oats. When a recipe calls for "rolled oats" or the packaging mentions it, they generally mean the thickest rolled oat, which retains its shape fairly well during cooking. Substitute: Quick oats can be substituted, but the texture will be lost
Old-Fashioned Oats - The source of much confusion, old-fashioned oats are actually the same as rolled oats. You'll usually see them called "Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats" on packaging.
Quick or Quick-Cooking Oats - These are oats that have been pressed slightly thinner than rolled oats. They cook more quickly, but retain less of their texture. Substitute: Rolled Oats or Instant Oats
Instant Oats - Pressed even thinner than quick oats, instant oats oats often break into a coarse powder. They cook the quickest of all and make a very soft and uniform mush (erm...for lack of a better description). Substitute: Quick Oats.

As a final note, Harold McGee in on food and cooking says that all processed oats have the same nutritional value. This was a surprise to us. We assumed that the more processed the oat, the less nutrition would remain.

I buy rolled oats and make my own quick oats by putting in the food processor until the oats are the size I want.
I make oat flour this way as well and that you can sneak it into all sorts of foods to make them that bit more filling and healthy I treat this like plain flour (all purpose flour).

One way I use oatmeal is instead of cracker crumbs that some people add to their meatloaf I use oatmeal. Even have used it in hamburger meat to stretch it for hamburger patties and in my meatballs.
