We love this for breakfast, and it's healthy too. I usually make it with dried apples, but dried peaches and dried pears work too.
- 1 cup steel cut oats (don't use any other kind)
- 3 1⁄2 cups boiling water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 3⁄4 cup dried apple ring, cut up into small pieces
- 1⁄2 cup cut up dates
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 3 teaspoons dark brown sugar (I use splenda instead of sugar)
- Put everything except milk into boiling water and cook over med heat for about 25-30 minutes. Oats should be tender but not mushy. There should be some definite texture to the oats. Add milk, stir well and cook about 3 min more. Serve.
