A GREAT way to start your day! This recipe can be adapted to use steel cut oats as well…..use the amount of water specified for steel cut oats – typically one cup oats to 3-4 cups water – and simmer for a little extra time. Increase cinnamon and fruit accordingly, or to taste. Well worth it!
1 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup blueberries
2 apples, diced into small pieces
1-2 TBS chopped walnuts (may omit)
