All oats are pretty healthy, but I've been using steel cut oats because they are the best and most complete form. I was confused the different kinds, instant, rolled oats, etc. But steel cut oats are whole oats that have been chopped. The other forms aren't the complete oat.
Makes 8-10 Servings
Steel cut oats (can sub regular)- 1 1/2 cups
Apples- 3, peeled and cubed
Milk/water- 3 cups (vanilla soy/almond milk is great!)
Lemon Juice- 2 tbsp.
Brown Sugar- 1/4 cup
Cinnamon- 1 tbsp.
Sea Salt- 1 tsp.
Cloves or Nutmeg- pinch, if desired
Chopped walnuts or pecans- optional
Can cook on stove top or in crock pot.
Stovetop: add all ingredients to large pot, bring to boil, then simmer 15-20 minutes or until oats are cooked through.
Crock pot: add all ingredients, cook 2.5 hours on high (stir often!) or 3-4 hours on low.
Rehydrate leftovers with a splash of milk, stir and reheat.
