Apple-Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats
1 cup steel cut oats
a pinch of kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 apple, any color
1 tsp sugar (brown or white)
2 tsp cinnamon
Bring 2 ½ cups water to a boil. Stir in oats, salt, and vanilla. Bring back to a boil, then turn down to a low simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until oats are cooked to desired doneness, about 20 minutes.
Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl. Cut the apple into small dice (about ¼ inch cubes) and add to sugar-cinnamon mixture. Stir to combine well.
Divide warm oats into individual serving bowls. Top with 1-2 tablespoons of cinnamon-apple.
Serve immediately or pack and bring to work for later.
