Pssst, I used my stove….

to make some yummy Steel Cut Oats this week for breakfast. It is finally feeling like fall in Texas. Well, not really fall, but less like summer.  Texans who have never lived elsewhere think this is fall, but as someone who has lived in places that have 4 distinct seasons, I would call this weather pseudo-fall.

I made some cooked oatmeal this week to celebrate the nice, less-hot weather.

Apple Cinnamon with Walnuts – I like to cook some of the apples with the oatmeal and then top it with raw apples.  Nice texture variation.

 

Banana Chocolate Chip with Walnuts –(the ripe banana is cooked into the oatmeal as it simmers, giving it a really rich taste)

 

Apple Cinnamon with Pecan Butter – next to my daughter’s plain oatmeal (she likes a small sprinkle of cinnamon but nothing else, thank you very much)


Pumpkin Oatmeal with Sliced Almonds – stirred in about 1/2 c canned pumpkin and some cinnamon and a small sprinkle of sugar – like fall in a bowl

I soak my oats the night before and then finish them up on the stovetop for about 10 minutes.  How do you top your oats?
