Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats with Quinoa, Pecans, and Maple Syrup
1/2 c. steel cut oats
2 T. quinoa
1 c. water
3/4 c. milk
1/2 apple, chopped (I peeled mine, but you wouldn’t have to)
1/4 t. cinnamon
Heat water until almost boiling. While this is happening, put oats in a medium size sauce pan on medium high heat and stir around until fragrant. Then, add quinoa, water and milk. If it’s not simmering at this point, bring it to a simmer. Cook for about 20-25 minutes. Once most of the liquid is absorbed, and it becomes creamy looking, add the apples and cinnamon. Give it a stir and turn off the stove. Leave the pan on the burner long enough to soften up the apple. Finally, spoon into a dish and top with pecans and maple syrup.
