This is our favorite oatmeal it tastes like apple pie. The steel cut oats have a more chewy texture to them and are a little heartier than the rolled oats. Keeping you full longer so you won't snack between breakfast and lunch.

Don't substitute rolled oats or quick cooking oats here in this recipe (they will turn to mush).

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This oatmeal is hearty and delicious. The flavors make this taste just like an apple pie... only it's healthy! Using steel cut oats helps the oatmeal from getting too mushy. This oatmeal recipe is so easy and flavorful, you'll never want that instant stuff again. And waking up to the aroma of this will get you out of bed in no time. A great way to start your day!
