Apple Pie Oatmeal

I wanted to feed something hearty to my guys before they went out in this frigid weather to shovel snow.  So, I made them apple pie steel cut oats.
 I diced a couple Honey Crisp apples.

 I used Quaker steel cut oats.

 Place the apples in 4 cups of water, add about 1/3 cup of brown sugar and some cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Stir in 1 cup of steel cut oats.

 Bring them to a boil and then cover the pot and turn it down to a simmer.  Cook for about 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

 Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon sugar before serving.  Stay warm wherever you are!

I have apples and cinnamon but no nutmeg or oats. I have however rye made in the same way. I might try this already today. Either that or an apple pie, I deserv that when it is as cold as it is.

Have a great day!

Looks delish! Do you cook the oatmeal separately and use the apple pie mix as a topping?

I've never fixed steel cut oats so now I know how to do it. Can't go wrong with using apples like that.
