(I put everything into a glass bowl and then pour water around them until I'm about one-inch short of the top.) You could easily substitute apple juice for the milk / fake-milk for a portion of the cooking liquid.

I've not tried them on the high setting, will have to experiment with that here soon.
Thanks! Haven't found steel cut oats yet, but will give it a try when I do.

How about adding the apples at the very end of the cooking time (no matter how you cook it)?? I sometimes cook up some apples with cinnamon and Splenda/butter flavor spray and keep in the fridge to add to my morning oatmeal. I also sometimes stir in frozen cherries or blueberries when I heat it up in the morning.

Until you pick up the steel cut oats, I'd try what you did again but on the stovetop. I've used the same indredients, except fresh apple for a single serving in the microwave before and had no problems.

If you're near TJ's they have the best price on the John McCann's oatmeal jennyema linked, it seemed kinda $pendy at the local grocery stores around here; Bob's Red Mill is also good stuff if you can find it. I'm lucky because our neighborhood co-op (PCC) has bulk bins where I buy tons of staples, steel-cut oats included.

Yep. Love these oats! But, I have to add that McCann's also makes an instant version that is, in my estimation, terrible. I stick with the type in the round metal can. They are yummy. I toast mine in an iron skillet before I cook them for extra flavor.

Steel cut oats are a must and it does sound like you cooked it too long. Why not leave out the apple and add some apple sauce and swirl it through at the end ad see what the texture is then.
