This maple-pecan porridge is made with steel cut oats and is refined sugar free. It is a filling breakfast that tastes like a treat.
  • 4¼ cups water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 apple (peeled and chopped)
  • Cinnamon
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Pecans
  1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil*.
  2. Add the steel cut oats and reduce heat to medium.
  3. Stir in the raisins.
  4. Add the chopped apple and stir again.
  5. Cook for 25 minutes (or 10 -12 minutes if using the tip below*) uncovered or until it is thickened.
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon, drizzle with maple syrup and add pecans for the final touch. Enjoy. (***Tip: Put the steel cut oats & water in the saucepan the night before you plan to cook it. In the morning bring it to a boil, reduce to medium heat and then start with step 3 - the oats will be softened and will cook in half the time!***)
