4 crisp apples
1 c. steel-cut oats
4 c. water
3 TBSP packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
optional: 1/2 c. honey vanilla or vanilla Greek yogurt
Shred two of the apples using the largest holes of a box grater.
Over med.-high heat, lightly toast the oats (about 2 min.). Add the water and shredded apples and bring to a boil. Simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the other two apples.
Add the apples and spices and continue to cook for 15-20 minutes more, until apples are tender and the oatmean is quite thick.
Serve with a dollop of yogurt if desired.
