Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Recipe - ready in 5 minutes!

I just recently discovered steel cut oats and I am hooked. Typically, steel cut oats take around 20-30 minutes to cook which I didn’t realize until I was chatting with my friend about my newfound love. She mentioned their long cooking time and it was then that I realized I had accidentally picked up a package of quick cooking steel cut oats and not the original longer cooking time oats. I have made today’s recipe a few times since creating it and both A and I love it. So much flavor and bite packed into a small filling bowl that takes all of 5 minutes to throw together. It’s one of those dessert-for-breakfast deals minus most of the fats and sugar.

    Yum, apples and cinnamon .. sounds like a perfect breakfast. I’ll try this flavor combo as overnight oats (my current obsession).

      I have yet to try overnight oats. They sound delish.
