Apple Chai Steel Cut Oats


Category: Breakfast

Want to start your day with a hot, hearty and delicious breakfast? A bowl of steel cut oats flavored with apples and chai-inspired spices is the way to go. Steel cut oats have a great, non-mushy texture and reheat well, so if pressed for time, you can make them the night before.

1 cup water
1/4 cup steel cut oats
1/2 cup diced apple
2 tablespoons raisins
1/2 tablespoon ground flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla bean powder or alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


In a saucepan, bring water to a boil and stir in all ingredients. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until oats are tender and water is absorbed, stirring occasionally.

Note: If you are short on time in the morning, this can be made the night before. Reheat before serving.

Just made this for breakfast and wow. So flavorful and filling. Subbed 2 chopped dates for the raisins & almond milk for the water. Very happy with this breakfast. Will follow it with a green peppermint tea. YUM.

I always disliked oatmeal but since I am eating healthy now,, I had to step up to the plate,, so I went to the store & I got Bob's Red Mill Old Fashioned Rolled Whole Grain Oats. I followed the recipe and added strawberries and  a little flaxseeds that I ground in my coffee grinder & added  a few cut up organic Dates for extra sweetner. I am a oatmeal lover now

Dear "oyesitis...".  I hope you enjoyed your recipe you made.  This recipe calls for Steel Cut Oats, a whole, new different oat.  It's tiny and chewy, and very delicious.  I, too, am a fan of old fashioned whole grain oats, I hope the recipe turned out as you expected.  Bob's Red Mill also has an organic, 100% whole grain Steel Cut Oats (also known as Irish Oats).  We learn something new every day, don't we.
