I just recently started eating Coach's 'steel-cut, cracked and toasted' Oats and it's got me hooked. It's nutty and full of flavor. The original recipe from the package the brown sugar is packed and the table salt is regular salt. Please note that I'm not sure how this will work with regular oatmeal. The number of cookies will depend on the size you make them. Okay, I bought another brand of 'steel-cut' oatmeal to see if there was a difference. There was enough difference in the texture, flavor, cook-time and overall quality (to me) that I recommend you use the Coach's brand for this recipe.

- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup sugar

I love Steel Cut Oatmeal cookies, but while this recipe is OK, I have always soaked/boiled the oats ahead of the cookie recipe, and this method makes a chewier cookie overall,while being the most healthy as well.
I also sometimes soak the raisins in Bourbon for about an hour, which adds a bite to the cookie as well. Very yummy cookie;)
Delicious! My Gluten Free (and other) adaptations: Only 1 cup of sugar (plenty sweet!), added one extra egg, upped cinnamon to 1 Tb, added 1tsp ginger, added 1/2 tsp of almond extract and more vanilla than called for, used 1.5 Cups GF flour blend + 1 cup Almond flour, 1/2 cup cranberries and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
I made these cookies today. They were pretty good and flavorful. I used Bob's Redmill steel cut oats. I soaked the oats for about an hour and then drained them, but I think next time I will soak them for between two and three hours. They were still too hard. Overall, a tasty and kind of healthy cookie.
