I enjoy a good breakfast but I admit it is my least favorite meal to prepare. That leads to eating cereal more often then I should. I am trying to eat better and I know that starting with a healthy, hearty breakfast is a great start. I do not like any type of instant oatmeal. The kids gobble it up but I don't like the texture. My previous slow cooker oatmeal was good. I just didn't love it so I didn't make it as often as I should have.
I have been playing with different recipes and finally found one that I love.
8 1/2 cups water
2 cups steel cut oats
1 3/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Pour all of the ingredients into a butter greased crock pot or use a liner. Mix together and cook for 8 to 10 hours on low. When I get up I turn it onto warm and then stir before serving. At that point you can add any fruit, nuts or additional sweetener if needed.
This makes a huge batch. Next time I will cut in in half and will still have plenty for the week. Enjoy!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
