This is a seriously fuel-filled breakfast so plan it for a day when you'll need some energy. Recently we hiked around Cedar Tree Neck with our steel cut oatmeal power.
10 Minute Steel-Cut Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
3 cups water
1 cup steel-cut oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk (or nut milk)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 apple, grated
2 tablespoon dark brown sugar
chopped mixed raw nuts and maple syrup for topping
1. The night before, bring 3 cups water to boil in large saucepan over high heat. Remove pan from heat; stir in oats and salt. Cover pan and let stand overnight.
2. In the morning, stir milk, cinnamon, apple, and brown sugar into oats and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until oats are softened but still retain some chew and mixture thickens and resembles warm pudding, 4 to 6 minutes.
3. Remove pan from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir and serve, passing desired toppings separately (I like chopped mixed raw nuts and maple syrup).
