  1. Bring water to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan, and stir in the oats. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook oats until they begin to thicken, about 10 minutes; mix in the apple, carrot, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Let the oats simmer until tender, about 20 more minutes.
  2. While the oats are simmering, melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the pecans. Toast the nuts until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes, then sprinkle with brown sugar and stir until sugar has melted and coated the pecans.
  3. Serve in bowls, each topped with about 2 tablespoons of the pecan mixture and a dollop of yogurt.

This sounded so good, but unfortunately, we didn't care for it. The ginger overpowered and gave it a rather pungent taste and left an aftertaste. If I were to make this again, I would completel...

Wow - this is really good and very filling! This makes a lot so you'll definitely have enough leftover for future mornings. But, if you like carrot cake that won't be a problem! I cut back on th...

What a great idea! So Yummy. I didn't have steel cut oats, so I cooked all the ingredients except the oats, until soft, then added quaker oats and cooked for the time listed on the package.

Really good and really filling. It needs a little something I can't put my finger on, so I'll peruse the other reviews and see if someone has already found the answer. I may even need to double ...

Steel-cut oats are great for a big batch that lasts all week. Usually I make mine plain and 'accessorize' by the bowl. A whole batch of one flavor is a big commitment! Thankfully I love carrot c...

So delicious! I mixed in a teaspoon of cream cheese to give it even more of a carrot cake feel.

Yummy!! Used my Zojirushi rice cooker and put everything in up to the pecans. Delish and easy for my family who eat breakfast at different times of the day. Family ate it all the first day, but...

Tastes just like carrot cake when you add the yogurt just not as sweet as the real think. Will keep in my frequently made file.
