    I only used 2 apples (honey crisp), 1 cup steel cut oats and 3 cups of water. I added cinnamon and a splash of vanilla as well as maple syrup. Excellent! My kids loved it!

    Not a fan. Made this with 2 apples, 1 cup oats, 1/3 cup honey, 3 cups water, 1 cup coconut milk. Thought apples would become pureed but they stayed in firm pieces yet they lost their tast completely.
