Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal
Heart-healthy steel-cut oatmeal cooks up perfectly in no time in the pressure cooker, and cinnamon and apple make this an autumn morning must. If you’ve never tried steel-cut oats, they’re instant oats’ chewier, healthier cousin. If you’re gluten-intolerant, be sure to buy oats that are labeled as gluten-free. Top with chopped walnuts for a bit of protein.
