Makes 4 servings.

- 1 cup steel-cut oats
- 3 apples, peeled and diced
- ¾ cup dried cranberries

- 1 tbsp. honey or maple syrup (optional) .
Bring 3½ cups of water to a boil. Once boiled, add 1 cup steel-cut oats. Add peeled and diced apples, dried cranberries, cocoa, honey, cinnamon, and peanut butter. Cook for 15 minutes on medium-low heat.
Keeps well in the fridge for 4 days.
