Slow Cooker Oats
Thank you, brandysue, for this recipe. Oatmeal is so good for you and the steel cut oats are even better, but I don't usually make them because they take way too long to cook on the stove and I don't have time for that when I have to get off to work in the morning. But, this is a great alternative because I can make a batch that lasts throughout the week where the last serving tastes as good as the first. This recipe is like having dessert for breakfast, but there's no guilt involved. Cooking the steel-cut oats in the slow cooker overnight is a wonderful idea. I think the recipe works well just as it is, but I did tweak it because I didn't have raisins and I've always preferred milk over water in my oatmeal. I added dried cranberries, flax seed and an additional 2T brown sugar. I don't think the tablespoon of cinnamon is overpowering at all. Cinnamon is so very good for you (lowers LDL and stabilizes blood sugar) that the more the better, IMHO. The only issue I had was that it stuck big time to my crock pot. I think the pot runs hot, so I will adjust the setting from 'low' to 'warm' next time and spray some Pam on the sides to see if that eliminates the problem. I had also put just a tad of honey in the mix which probably contributed to the sticking, as well. I love a recipe that not only tastes good, but is easy to make AND has the benefit of actually being good for you.
