Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Apples and Cinnamon

Apr 23, 2020 | Breakfast

This is my family’s go-to recipe for steel-cut oatmeal. It tastes like apple pie in a bowl, but a bit less sweet, and it’s a hearty way to start your day. The richness of the toasted oats paired with apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar just melts in your mouth. For added nutrition, I mix in chia seeds and flaxseed meal. For added pop, I add some lemon juice which wakes up all the flavors. But the real trick is toasting the oats in the butter, apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. This really deepens and enhances the flavor of the oats. Oh, and this is a one-pot meal—enjoy!
