I have a lot of revisions I want to get done today, so obviously the first order of business for the morning was eating a healthy breakfast. Oatmeal is very healthy. So I made some. The texture of instant oatmeal doesn’t do it for me, so I made a nice pot of steel cut oats (which I have raved about before). Steel cut oats take about half an hour to cook, and while they were going, I wondered what I could do to improve upon this lovely and healthy breakfast.
Well, I like oatmeal, but I like apple pie better. So I mixed up some topping (apple, pecans, maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg):
