Why does the recipe suggest shredding the apple but the photo shows apple chunks? if you are afraid of the apples not being cooked, they could be cut and then softened in the microwave for a minute before adding to the oatmeal. Applesauce can also be used but be sure to adjust the sugar since some applesauce has added sugar. Yogurt can be omitted as can cinnamon.

7 Reviews for Apple Oatmeal
I've never been a fan of oatmeal, but the apples in this recipe make this recipe absolutely delicious. I used Macintosh apples, even though they're not as firm, and it blended into the oatmeal perfectly. No need for the yogurt or extra brown sugar on top.
I scaled down the recipe and made it for one. Yummy! I used rolled oats instead of steel cut, and a Gala apple. It took a while to prep but was well worth it on this cold snowy Saturday. Will have this again and again.
Made for one. Used Jazz apple, all of it shredded, adding half in the beginning as called for and the other half when told to add the chopped. The apples never did get tender. Did not have yogurt, but thought it wasn't necessary.
cooking steel-cut oats always seemed like too much trouble to bother with but this recipe was super easy and really great.
