Steel Cut Oats are the bomb.com.
They just take a long time to cook.
Set up your crock pot full of oats the night before, and wake up to a delicious warm breakfast!
Recipe adapted from The Yummy Life.
1 cup steel cut oats
1.5 cups of milk (or dairy alternative…I used almond milk)
1.5 cups of water
2 tbsp butter (cut into chunks)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 apple (diced)
1/2 cup cranberries (optional for an added tartness. if omit, use an additional apple, or another fruit!)
2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
1. Grease every corner of your crock pot with cooking spray or butter (very important step if you don’t want to take a hammer and chisel to it the next day!!).
2. Add all ingredients, stir, and set on low for 7 hours.
2. Sleep in an extra 20 minutes and wake-up to a hot, already made, delicious breakfast!
My favorite part are the crispy clusters that come from the edge of the crock pot!
add a splash of cool milk…
and/or add walnuts, brown sugar, pecans, bananas….the possibilities are endless!
and…not the post appeal pic, but here you can see the crock pot aftermath….not bad!!
cheers and happy evolving!
