Oatmeal on a cold morning is a personal favorite. I’ve seen a ton of recipes for slow-cooked oatmeal and finally decided to try it. I’ve tried my own version and it’s worked well on the first try! The steel-cut oats give the oatmeal fabulous texture and the old-fashioned oats provide the creaminess that’s perfectly soothing on a cold morning. Make in the evening and wake up to a perfect breakfast.
4 cups water
1/2 cup steel-cut oats ( I used McCannâ€™s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal)
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats ( I used Old Fashioned Quaker Oats)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Maple syrup (optional)
Golden raisins (optional)
Warmed, light cream (optional)
1) Find a ovenproof bowl that will fit inside your slow cooker with some space around it. Fill the slow cooker with water to half full. Place the empty bowl in the slow cooker.
2) Blend the water, oats and salt in the bowl.
3) Turn the slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours.
Serve with maple syrup, raisins and cream if desired.
