Steel cut oats are the perfect breakfast for someone trying to lower his/her cholesterol. Try this recipe for a real treat in flavor and nutrition! This recipe calls for blueberries, but blackberries have even more cholesterol lowering soluble fiber.


  1. Prepare steel cut oats to package directions and desired consistency.
  2. Place 1/4 of cooked oats in breakfast bowl.
  3. Top with 1/2 cup yogurt.
  4. Top with 1/4 cup blueberries. If using frozen blueberries, thaw them slightly in the microwave. Also consider blackberries for more soluble fiber!

I was short on time so I used quick cooking oats and made them in the microwave. I followed the rest of the recipe as written using fresh blueberries. I really enjoyed this but my son thought it was just OK. I did add a teaspoon of Splenda to his as he likes his sweet. I liked it both ways.
