Do you want to get something out of your breakfast? Go from regular to healthy, delicious, and hearty with this Apple Cherry Steel-Cut Oatmeal. It's a warm, fall recipe that you can cook in 1 pot.
2applespeeled, cored and cubed
1/4cuphazelnutsroasted and coarsely chopped
brown sugar, honey, maple syrupoptional
Transfer the steel-cut oats to a pan and cook them on low until fragrant. Stir constantly for a few minutes.
Add water, apples, dried cherries and salt and bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook for about 25-30 minutes. Stir frequently. Oats have absorbed all the liquid and are creamy. Apples are soft and cherries are full and moist.
Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon. Allow the mixture to rest and cool just a little bit. Oats will thicken.
Depending on the type of apples you used and depending how much of a sweet tooth you are, you may want to add some brown sugar, honey or maple syrup at this point.
Divide the oatmeal over 2 bowls, sprinkle with the roasted chopped hazelnut and enjoy.
