Recipe: Steel Cut Oatmeal – Fall Edition

I love the Steel Cut Oatmeal recipe so much that I’d love to have the time to fix it everyday.  But, I don’t, so I settle for one or two times each week.  (I try to make a little extra for leftovers the next day.) This week, I decided to add some diced apples to it and thought chopped pecans would be nice too.  I was not disappointed; they were fantastic!  While I was eating, I thought that pure maple syrup would make a wonderful finishing touch.  (I tried this the next day with the leftover bowl and it was a great addition!)  I also wonder how pumpkin would taste in it.  Anyway, try out this new fall hearty breakfast recipe and let me know how you like it.

    Sadly, only 2 of the 5 of us here like oatmeal. This looks wonderful, though! I have a friend who taps her own maple syrup and just brought me a jar the other day. I’ll see if she has anymore for you!

    I LOVE steel cut oats. As far as gfree oats go, the steel cut has a much better texture than regular gfree rolled oats. I was wondering if you have tried doing baked oatmeal or doing it n the crock pot so you may enjoy it more often. Both of these options allow you to prepare them at dinner time the night before and wake up to gluten free steel cut oats everyday (if you wish). Just asking’. Have a great night.

      I just posted my favorite baked oatmeal recipe last week.

      I may have made oatmeal in the crockpot once and didn’t care for it. But I love this new baked oatmeal recipe where I allow the oats to soak. The original recipe said that it’s good with steel cut oats too. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think I will this week. I’ll have to post about it.
