Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

1/2 cup steel-cut oats*, soaked and cooked
1/2 a fresh apple, diced
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut or almond milk
1 tablespoon raw almond butter
a sprinkle of raw honey, Lakanto, or Super Sweet Blend
dash of salt

*I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats

To Soak and Cook the Oats: the night before, put the oats in a small pot, add 1 cup water, and 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice, stir and cover. Let soak overnight. In the morning, rinse the oats, add fresh water to the same pot, a pinch of salt, bring to a boil, cover, reduce to a simmer and cook until the grain is tender but still slightly chewy, approximately 20 minutes.

Spoon the cooked oats into a breakfast bowl. Top with the almond butter, raw honey, cinnamon, and apples. Pour the coconut milk around the edges, as a moat. Dig in!

    1. Hi, Amy! Thank you! Real maple syrup (both A and B) is only mildly acid-forming, so using it in small amounts infrequently is just fine!
