I finally went ahead and tried it. I used cooked, soaked steel cut oats leftover from breakfast. It turned out great. Here's my recipe:
1 cup cooked steel cut oats
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup all-purpose flour ( I used half whole wheat)
1/4 cup sweetener (half maple sugar, half palm sugar, decreased a little)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix egg, oil and oats. In separate bowl mix other ingredients. Add to oat mixture. Bake at 350 til done.
That sounds great, thanks! But is that for muffins? or more like baked oatmeal, in a casserole dish? Can I put this into muffin tins? Thanks again, I've been wanting to know how to do this with steel-cut oats for a looong time!
I did muffins, mini loaves and a full size loaf, which is why I coud not give a cooking time. They all came out at different times. I found the loaf tasted best. The muffins had to much "crust" for my taste. The loaf and mini loaves were softer. Everyone in my house LOVED them!!
I'm new to TF so forgive me, but what do you mean by "cooked, soaked steel cut oats"? Is it something different than the directions on the bag of steel cut oats? When I make them I think it involves cooking on the stovetop for about 11 minutes.
To soak them, just mix oats and water and add a spoonful of something acidic: whey, yogurt, kefir, lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. Gale Force says that adding freshly ground wheat helps reduce the phytates but I haven't figured out a GF way to do this.
