Serves: 1
  • ½ cup stee cut oats
  • 1 - 1½ cups water
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, seeded and cut in ½-inch cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar, lightly packed (or 1 T, packed)
  • Pecans for topping
  • Yogurt for topping
  1. To prepare the oats: In a small saucepan combine the water and steel cut oats following a 2:1 ratio of water to oats. Bring to a boil then lower heat to simmer until the oats are tender, about 15 minutes. If the oats get too dry, add a couple of tablespoons of water at a time.
  2. To prepare the apples: While the oats cook, heat the butter in a small pan over medium-high heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the butter melts, turns brown and smells nutty. Add the apple pieces, cook over medium heat for 2 minutes then add the brown sugar. Cook for another 2 minutes or until the apple pieces are tender.
  3. Transfer the cooked oats to a bowl and top with cooked apples followed by the pecans and yogurt. Eat warm.
