When you're using steel cut oats, 1/3 of a cup of oats cooked according to package directions is 1 block, or 1 cup of cooked oats is 3 blocks. If you want to eat apple sauce just have 2/3 of a cup of cooked oats and add 1 block of the apple sauce.
I agree, I find that I usually combine fractions of blocks to make my meals. this way I am eating 5 cups of raw spinach (1/4 block of Carb), with a bunch of other vegetables instead of 20 cups of spinach by itself...which can really get uninspiring right away.
