Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats with Quinoa, Pecans, and Maple Syrup

Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats with Quinoa, Pecans, and Maple Syrup

Serves 2

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

pecans

maple syrup

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.
