Procrastinating with a Healthy Breakfast

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):

Apple-pecan topping

And when the oatmeal was ready, I scooped the topping onto it:

The shot above, however, is an intermediate shot. To prove that there is actually some oatmeal involved. By the time I had finished piling on the topping, the oatmeal was completely concealed:

A Healthy Breakfast?

Apple pie oatmeal is delicious.

(And now I should probably stop procrastinating and get to work!)


  1. Yum. I trust you made enough for everybody.

  2. I’ve been meaning for ages to figure out what is important about the “steel cut” part of “steel cut oats”….

  3. Mmm… Adding yogurt sounds like a good trick, I’ll have to try it!

  4. Looks yummiful!
