Steel Cut Oats (topping variation)

Steel Cut OatsI know everyone is looking for healthier alternatives in their diets. I’ve shared my favorites Slowcooker Oatmeal with you before. I like to add different toppings to it to change it up a bit. This is one of my favorite. I prefer to grate a fresh apple, but when I don’t have one
I use a spoonful of low sugar applesauce.
What are some ways you’re trying to lighten-it-up in the new year?

    How much oats do you use? Sounds like something I would love to make for these cold mornings!

  2. I usually do the 1 cup of Oats using this recipe

  3. I've been eating slow cooked steel cut oats for awhile. I chop up apples and use agave nectar and cinnamon in it, then cook it overnight. I have been adding a little brown sugar when I put it into my bowl, but I really need to stop doing that! ;-) I really look forward to having breakfast every morning!

  4. Mmmm. Looks nummy! I've made a similar recipe before and it got me hooked on steel cut oats!

    Since Jan 1st, I've cut out wheat and sugar from my diet, and I discovered that I LOVE unsweetened Silk almond milk mixed with unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar sub – better than the Swiss Miss packets I once OD'ed on.

    Im stopping by from Friendship Friday.
