  1. Bring water to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan, and stir in the oats. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook oats until they begin to thicken, about 10 minutes; mix in the apple, carrot, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Let the oats simmer until tender, about 20 more minutes.
  2. While the oats are simmering, melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the pecans. Toast the nuts until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes, then sprinkle with brown sugar and stir until sugar has melted and coated the pecans.
  3. Serve in bowls, each topped with about 2 tablespoons of the pecan mixture and a dollop of yogurt.

Steel-cut oats are great for a big batch that lasts all week. Usually I make mine plain and 'accessorize' by the bowl. A whole batch of one flavor is a big commitment! Thankfully I love carrot c...

Yummy!! Used my Zojirushi rice cooker and put everything in up to the pecans. Delish and easy for my family who eat breakfast at different times of the day. Family ate it all the first day, but...

I like it..I didn't have any carrots so used little pumpkin & had no apples so I used applesauce. Tasty!

So delicious! I mixed in a teaspoon of cream cheese to give it even more of a carrot cake feel.

This sounded so good, but unfortunately, we didn't care for it. The ginger overpowered and gave it a rather pungent taste and left an aftertaste. If I were to make this again, I would completel...

I used oat groats instead of steel cut oats. The apple and raisins made this sweet enough without sugar. I made this dairy free, so avoided the butter and yogurt. This great spicy smelling cer...
