Apple Pie Steel Cut Oats

I don't eat steel cut oats very often since they take so long to cook but found a recipe that soaks them overnight and then they only take 5 mintues. You can make them with different fruit, nuts and spices for variety. The original recipe used cinnamon, cardamon and nutmeg but I didn't have them so I just used pumpkin pie spice.

1 cup steel cut oats
1 3/4 cup milk alternative ( I used almond)
1 tbl brown sugar or honey
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 apple
1/2 cup almonds

In a medium size nonmetal mixing bowl combine oats, milk, sugar and spice :). Mix well and cover. Let it sit overnight. The next morning chop up the apple and add it to the oatmeal mixture. Place mixture in a medium size pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and simmer for 5 minutes or until oatmeal is cooked, stirring occasionally. *Mine took closer to 10 minutes because I have an old inefficient stove. Serve with almonds, additional milk or additional sweetener. Enjoy!
