Apple Pie Oatmeal

When I woke up today, I think the breakfast gods are smiling on me.

Because I made healthy and delicious breakfast…

I have a bad habit of not eating breakfast, you know.

Today is the exemption, I am celebrating my first cup of coffee via the stovetop coffee maker peanutbutter sent me.

Apple Pie Oatmeal | www.thepeachkitchen.comThe breakfast gods created the perfect morning for me.

If there are breakfast gods…but I think it’s all me.{of course, there are no breakfast gods!}

I’m such in a good mood, I made apple pie oatmeal.

And I used steel cut oats. They are healthier, less processed and takes longer to cook. Instant oatmeals cooks in, like,  4 seconds. {hee, no, I’m just exaggerating}

Steel cut oats cooks in 20-30 minutes but believe me it’s totally worth the  stirring/waiting time.

Apple Pie Oatmeal
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • a pinch of cinnamon
Directions
  1. If you’re feeling a little fancy, you can caramelize the diced apple in butter and brown sugar before mixing it with the cooked oatmeal.
  2. Or if not, combine milk, water, apple and oats in a small pot.
  3. Bring to a boil with constant stirring to prevent it from sticking in the bottom of the pot and burning.
  4. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, while stirring constantly.
  5. Add cinnamon and brown sugar. Add a little more sugar if you like it sweeter.
  6. Serve hot.

    Wow, I must get all fancy with my apples because I add muscovado sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger and nutmeg! But I use my rice cooker on a timer to cook my oats and so I have all of that set up overnight and wake up to the smell of cooking oats :)

    I like eating oatmeal and with the idea of adding brown sugar, a pinch of cinnamon and sliced apple is great :)

    Yum! Oatmeal is my father’s favorite breakfast. They are healthy and so delicious, especially with the extra milk on top. I haven’t tried eating it with fruits, I have to try that one of these days. I prefer “long cooking” oatmeal. I don’t know what kind or what is it called, as long as it’s Quaker and not instant. Instant oatmeal are too starchy for me.

    I am sorry for the super late blog-hopping. If you haven’t visited yet, here is my Food Trip Friday (April 1 issue) entry: Lunch at Chowking
