Steel cut oats, also referred to as pinhead oatmeal and Scottish oats, are oat groats that have been husked and cut into smaller pieces. Being less processed than rolled oats, steel cut oats take significantly longer to cook.

Health considerations

Compared to quick cooking oats, steel cut oats have a lower glycemic index and take longer to digest. See: Oats.
