Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats

Another of the yummy breakfast recipes in the Xagave cookbook is Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats. Steel cut oats have a nutty, crunchy taste and texture. I prefer mine a little softer, so I like to make it in the evening and then just warm up a bowl of it in the microwave in the morning.

Breakfast doesn’t get much healthier than steel cut oats, but topped with a little fruit, some nuts, and a drizzle of agave, I still feel like I’m getting a sweet treat in the morning. (The picture is from the cookbook, mine looked sort of gray.)
