Manly Porridge

Because this is how breakfast goes down around here - it has to be manly.  All these adventures to fuel, work to do, play- breakfast has to be hearty!  Here is how we do porridge around here.  Enjoy!

Set 4 cups of water to boil in a large pot.  Once boiling, turn the heat down and add 2 cups of milk; stir.  Add in 4 1/2 cups steel cut oats, 2 cups peeled and chopped apples, 1/2 cup ground flax seed.  Cook about 4 minutes just barely under simmer.  Add in 3/4 cup coconut, 1 cup chopped nuts {almonds, pecans, etc.}, 3/4 cup dried cranberries, 1 cup brown sugar and 2 Tbsp. apple pie spice. Cook a few minutes longer over low heat, stirring occasionally and adding more milk as you see fit.  When the oats are cooked, scoop into serving bowls, cover with a slosh of heavy cream and a touch of maple syrup.
