Cranberry, Apple, Yam Oatmeal

This is what we're eating for breakfast this morning.  It's one of my favorite combos so far.

Cranberry, Apple and Yam Oatmeal

Combine in a pot
3 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/2 large jewel yam peeled and diced
handful of dried cranberries (fresh would be better)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Refrigerate and soak overnight.  This activates some of the live nutrients in the oatmeal making it even healthier and everything cooks faster the next morning.

Cook over medium heat 5 - 10 minutes until water is absorbed

Yummm!

Update:  The twins LOVED it!  The kept asking for more (with baby signs).  I added a little sea salt and maple syrup to mine but I overdid it - it didn't need the sweetener.  Still, it was so good!  Can't wait to make it again.  I think I'm going to experiment with this combo in muffins...
