Steel cut oats with pumpkin and cinnamon apple
September 17, 2012 § 1 Comment
Yesterday morning I made this after a chilly long run. It is healthy, easy, and is also a fantastic fall breakfast. Need I say more? Note: This recipe is for one portion, but you can easily double/triple/quadruple it if you want.
1 cup water
1/4 cup steel cut oats
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp agave (or brown sugar)
1 apple, chopped into cubes
pumpkin pie seasoning, to taste
cinnamon, to taste
about 1/8 to 1/4 cup milk (according to preference)
Make the oats according to the directions on the label (mine is 1 cup of water for a 1/4 cup oats).
While the oats are simmering on your stove, chop one apple into 1/2 inch cubes and place in a bowl with a bit of water (about 1/4 cup). Microwave for approximately 3 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Once cooked, strain out the water and set aside.
Once the oats are ready (typically after 20-30 minutes simmering on the stove), add in pumpkin puree, agave (or brown sugar), pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, apples, and milk. Stir together, and enjoy!
