1) Take one rice cooker with porridge setting and fuzzy logic. I use this one.
2) Add one cup steel cut oats (use the cup that came with the rice cooker which is equal to about 3/4 of a cup).
3) Add one chopped apple sans peel (use only sweet apples, not sour. Granny Smith will taste gross in this, trust me).
4) Sprinkle cinnamon over the top (about one teaspoon).
5) Add a dash of nutmeg (optional)
6) Fill with water to halfway between the 1/2 cup mark and the 1 cup mark on the line labeled “Porridge” (on my rice cooker, there are lines for sushi rice, brown rice, white/mixed rice, and porridge).
7) Put rice cooker to the porridge setting and press the “Cooking” button.
When it’s all done, which should be in about an hour, spoon out into two big bowls and add brown sugar or other sweetener to taste (I also use Agave, which is delicious and really good for you).
On top of all that, I add walnuts and chia seeds. If I eat oatmeal without chia seeds, I’m hungry in an hour. Chia is another one of those foods (like Agave) that help your body regulate blood sugar levels by slowing the digestive process. Nice side effect: stay fuller longer!
This is a yum change from my usual way of eating steel cut oats (that post later). Oh, also: this is a great low sodium option for folks out there that need to watch their salt intake.
Okay, that’s it.
