"I am making an effort to eliminate refined sugar. This recipe has replaced the packs of overly-sweetened instant oatmeal I ate, thinking that it was healthy. Now, I make this every Sunday and take it to work for the rest of the week. At less than 100 calories per serving, it feels hearty but keeps me on track."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

steel cut oats
I followed the recipe as far as ingredients go, omitting the optional raisins. I have 3 slow cookers, but not one has a medium setting. I used the smallest one, a 2-quart slow cooker. I used the HIGH setting and stirred at the end of each hour for 2 hours. Then I turned it to LOW for another hour, stirring after each half hour segment. I understand some people do not want sugar, and I can respect that. I prefer a small amount of erythritol/stevia blend and added it at the end before I filled 6 small half pint jars. Now I have breakfast ready for the week and can add berries or nothing at all. ***Update - This is delicious cold even! A great grab-n-go breakfast!
For our house, it's not important that we leave out dairy, so I added a tablespoon or two of butter for richness. Serve it with milk or half and half and I feel like I've got Heaven in a bowl!
I'm about to make this for the third time since my first batch a week ago. I like it that much. But I prefer it minus the raisins.
1- I use steel cut oats.
2- I use ripe bananas.
3- For alternative flavors, I like to substitute (fresh or frozen) blueberries for raisins...Or a pureed apple. Be creative!
There is nothing wrong with the recipe except that I didn't like it.
