Apple Pie Oatmeal – steel cut oats cooked with apples, raisins, and pecans, is a wonderfully healthy breakfast recipe for cool fall days.

I’ll tell y’all something – I have gotten so behind on cooking for the blog. I realized yesterday afternoon that I had nothing, nothing, to post today. Not a single recipe or photo “in the bin” as I call it. Not one thing to share.

I thought for a while that I would have to just skip my usual Friday post, but then I woke up this morning to pouring rain and 40 degrees out and I was craving a bowl of hearty, warm oatmeal. This Apple Pie Oatmeal to be specific. So, I got up, pulled on some comfy pants, made my oatmeal, photographed it, and here we are. A Friday post!

I make our oatmeal these days using the steel-cut type rather than rolled oats. I find them much more satisfying, I think because of the chewiness in them. We really enjoy the traditional brands like McCain but they do take a bit of cooking. 30 to 40 minutes. However, I recently started buying the 3-minute steel-cut oats from Quaker and find them quite good. Although, for me, it takes a bit more than 3 minutes to get tender oatmeal. More like 5 or 6 minutes.

A good bowl of oatmeal will fill me up and keep me going until well beyond lunch time. Even better if it’s mixed with some lovely fruit and nuts. In this version, I’ve used fresh, diced apple, raisins, and pecans. Although you may not include raisins and pecans in your apple pie, they’re a great addition in this delicious bowl of oatmeal.

How to Make Apple Pie Oatmeal

Bring the water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat.

Bring the water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Whisk in the oatmeal. Add the apple, raisins, pecans, and cinnamon. Stir well. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook 5-6 minutes or until the water is mostly absorbed and the oats are tender. Serve topped with brown sugar and cream.

Whisk in the oatmeal. It’s important to whisk it in, otherwise you’ll get little clumps in your cooked oatmeal.

  1. I love oatmeal for breakfast -and lunch- and when you add all the sweet apples to it, it sounds wonderful!

  2. I usually cook regular Quaker Oatmeal (not instant) in the microwave. Have you tried that with the steel cut oats? My mornings are pretty rushed, so out the door with something hot is a great idea!

    Stay warm!

  3. Perfect choice for breakfast, and your blog. I love apples so this would be right up my alley. I mean apple pie for breakfast…..winning!

  4. I love oatmeal in the mornings too! I don’t get hungry afterwards like I do when I have cereal. Love the flavors too!

    1. Well, they are a quick-cooking type but they do take at least 5 minutes, 6 is better, to cook to where I like them :-)
