Apple Pie Oatmeal

As the heaters turn up and the frost lines windows, I love warm comfort foods, especially when they are good for you too! This recipe was originally inspired by Bob’s Red Mill’s cookbook, but I have made several modifications until it finally became my perfect autumn/winter breakfast.

Apple Pie Oatmeal (2)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large apple, chopped (Honey-crisp is particularly delcious)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats (or 1 cup of old fashioned rolled oats)
  • 1/2 cup fresh pressed apple cider
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Put the coconut oil in a medium sauce pan on high-medium heat. When the oil is melted, add the chopped apples and spices.
  2. Saute apples until soft, then add the oats, apple cider, and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer until the oatmeal thickens (15 – 20 minutes).
  3. Heat the chopped pecans in a fry pan over medium heat. Stir them frequently and watch them as they burn quickly. Remove from heat when they are slightly toasted.
  4. Once the oatmeal has thickened, add the chopped pecans and serve immediately.

    Yummy, this sounds good. Oatmeal is not Ron’s favorite but he eats it at least once a week because I cook breakfast. 🙂 Does it matter when you add the oatmeal? BTW, how are you? It was grand to see you last month. Love, Dolores
