    Default Please help me do the math on Steel Cut Oats

    Okay I admit it...I'm not so good with math and this one has me stumped.

    I need to figure out my points per serving on Steel Cut Oats but can't calculate what it would be based on the "raw" information versus what I ended up with cooked.

    Nutrition Info for 1/4 cup Steel Cut Oats (raw,dry,uncooked)
    Cal 140
    Fat 2.5
    Fiber 4

    I made one batch which included 1 cup oats. It yielded 2.5 cups of cooked oats. I can't figure out how many points it would be for a 1/2 cup of cooked oats. Please help Thanks!

    You used 1 cup of oats so you multiply the NI by 4 to get the NI for 1 cup
    560 cal
    10 fat
    16 fiber

    Then you got 2.5 cups of cooked oats. 1/2 cup is 1/5 of that so divide your numbers by 5 which gives you

    92 cal
    8 fat
    3.2 fiber

    or 2 points.

    Okay, that really helps, I just need to total the entire amount divided by the number of servings. I knew it was something easy, but my brain was tired this morning

    Thanks again!

    P.S. I came up with slightly different totals, although it was still 2points.

    Cal 112
    Fat 2
    Fib 3.2
    = 2 points

    Misty - I got the same totals you did, which come out to 2 points. Not sure how Joanne came up with her numbers

    Sorry, that's what I get from typing too fast. I fat fingered it in my calculator.
    I did get
    112
    2
    3.2
    per serving
