Ingredients


6-8 medium size apples

4 cups steel cut oatmeal (already cooked)

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/8 tsp of nutmeg

1 palm-sized serving of walnuts

Directions

Slice apples like you would for an apple pie (leaving the peels on is optional.) Put them in a pot and barely cover them with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender. This should take about 5-8 minutes. Refrigerate.

Take out your cooked steel cut oats from your refrigerator. Measure out ½ to 1 cup and place in a microwavable bowl. Top with an equal amount of the cooked apples, and then add your cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts. Stir well and microwave for about 1 minute or until warmed.

For another treat, replace the apples with peaches and top with skim milk to make a peach cobbler.
