One of my favorite things for fall: a warming bowl of healthy, comforting steel cut oatmeal, with the flavor turned way up by adding apples, dried cherry, cinnamon, and pure vanilla extract.
- Steel-cut oats
- Pure Vanilla Extract
- Dried cranberries
- Chopped apple — Granny Smith is great for this
- Milk or almond milk
- Brown sugar
- Chopped walnuts
- Ground Cinnamon
- In a pot, combine 1 cup steel cut oats with 3 cups water and 1/4 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer.
- Add chopped apple, dried cranberries, and 1/2 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract. Partially cover and cook 45 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
- Remove from heat and add toppings to taste: milk or almond milk, brown sugar, walnuts, and Ground Cinnamon.
