1 Prepare the caramel sauce. Place all ingredients into a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Add salt to taste. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir constantly. Simmer until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Set aside and cool.
2 In a serving bowl, pour hot water over oats. Let stand.
3 Top with apples and nuts then drizzle with caramel sauce. Add a dash of salt before serving.
