Since I had my little container of already cooked steel cut oats, I added the almond milk during the re-warming. I then jazzed it up with some ingredients I had on hand. I toasted the pecans slightly in the toaster oven, while the oats warmed up in the microwave w/ the almond milk. I used dark brown sugar because it has a nice molasses flavor, similar to that of pecan pie. If you have molasses on hand, then I would use that instead (I just didn't have any).

Use already cooked oats or cook oats according to your likeness. (If you aren't making the steel cut oats, then add a splash of vanilla and a pinch of salt to your oats as they are cooking.)
