A delicious oatmeal recipe to start the day!

Ingredients

  • 4 apples
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 tbsp packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Shred 2 apples using the large holes of a box grater, leaving the core behind.
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oats and cook, stirring, until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Add water and the shredded apples; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, chop the remaining 2 apples.
  4. After the oats have cooked for 10 minutes, stir in the chopped apples, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, cinnamon and salt; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and the oatmeal is quite thick, 15 to 20 minutes more. Divide the oatmeal among 4 bowls. Add nuts, dried fruit, etc.
