But anyway, back to this recipe. You soak the oats in milk and applesauce, which makes for a great flavor and creamy texture, but the milk stuck badly to my cooking pan. In the future, I might just try water and see what happens. However, this was very yummy and I was probably just not stirring often enough (was trying to make lunches and unload the dishwasher at the same time).
I added a little extra sugar to mine and topped with milk and chopped white peaches. (The peaches were a nice surprise- they were labeled yellow peaches at the store and turned out to be white when I cut them open! Love all peaches, but white peaches are a treat. They smell like flowers, too).
Overnight Steel-Cut Oats
from The Novice Chef
2 Hearty Servings
1 cup steel cut oats
1 3/4 cups skim or 1% milk
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 ounces all-natural applesauce (about one snack-sized cup)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
a pinch of salt
1. In a nonmetal bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, applesauce, cinnamon and salt. Stir in milk; cover and chill for 8 to 24 hours.
2. To serve, transfer oatmeal mixture to a medium saucepan. Heat just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until oatmeal is done, adding additional milk if desired and stirring occasionally (or a little more often).
3. Remove from heat. Add your favorite mix-ins (may need more sugar). Spoon into 2 bowls. Serve with additional milk, if desired.
