Steel Cut Oats with Cinnamon Apples

by Stephanie Suire on September 5, 2012

ONLY ONE DAY LEFT to enter my Bob’s Red Mill giveaway! You can win all four products featured in my brunch recipes. 

When I was a little girl, my mom believed in serving us a hot breakfast every morning before we went to school.   According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and eye-hand coordination.  I still have memories of eating CoCo Wheats at the breakfast table with my older sister before we walked down the street to catch the bus to school. 

4 Real Fact: When I was pregnant with both of my kids, I craved all the comfort foods of my childhood.  During one of my pregnancies, I suddenly had a craving for CoCo Wheats.  When I could not find it in the store, I bought chocolate cream of wheat thinking it would taste the same.  Sadly, chocolate cream of wheat tastes nothing like my childhood CoCo Wheats. 

Now that I am a mom with two little kids of her own, I struggle with finding time to cook them a hot breakfast in the mornings before I dash out the door to work.  In fact, I have trouble finding time to make myself a nutritious breakfast.  Steel cut oats have now replaced Coco Wheats as my favorite hot breakfast cereal but the traditional oats can take about 40 minutes to cook.  That is why I was so excited to find out that Bob’s Red Mill has Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats that are ready in 5-7 minutes.

One day my daughter asked me who was the best cook in the world.  Without hesitation, I answered “Julia Child!”  She then told me that she thinks I am the second best cook in the world. 

I will take second place to Julia Child any day. 

However I don’t know if I can maintain my second place status by serving my children plain, quick cooked oatmeal for breakfast.  So to sweeten it up and to make their breakfast extra special, I like to add homemade cinnamon apples. 

DSC_1378

Cinnamon apples are EASY with a capital E.  Simply peel two medium size apples, cut away the core and seeds, then slice the apples to about 1/4 inch thickness.

Chop your slices into small, bite sized pieces and put them into a medium-sized pot on the stove.

Now sprinkle the apples with a liberal amount of ground cinnamon.  I did not measure but I would guess I add about 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.  Add 1 tablespoon of butter and cover the apples with 2 tablespoons of sugar.  Put the lid on and cook over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes.  Uncover and reduce heat to medium low, cooking for an additional 3-4 minutes until apples are soft. 

DSC_1385

At this point, your entire house will smell like freshly baked apple pie.  Although I would never serve my kids apple pie for breakfast, I will give them a bowl of hot steel cut oats with cinnamon apples. 

This recipes makes enough apples for four servings of oatmeal.  You can either make the apples while the oats are cooking or make them the night before and warm them up before adding them to your oatmeal. 

DSC_1452

I pour the entire pot of freshly cooked cinnamon apples directly in my pot of oatmeal.  Stir to incorporate the apples, then serve this hot breakfast to your kids.  Save one serving for yourself and leave a note for your husband telling him you made him a hot breakfast and it is waiting in the microwave.

Now you can leave for working knowing that your kids will have the energy they need to get through their day.  However if you are like me, you are also going to need some coffee to get through your day…
