Steel-Cut Oatmeal in the Crockpot
Use an oven-safe bowl that will hold at least 4 cups of liquid and will fit inside your crockpot. Fill it with 1 cup of steel-cut oats and 4 cups of water. Put it in your crockpot and fill the crockpot with water until at the same level as the oats inside the bowl. Place lid on the crockpot and cook on low overnight. In the morning serve it with your favourite toppings. We like diced apples, Chia Goodness, cinnamon, maple syrup, walnuts and raisins.
This is so easy, and it makes a really fast and healthy breakfast in the morning. By using this double boiler method with the crockpot you ensure that the oatmeal won't burn if you happen to sleep in. Not that I know anything about that. I miss sleep. Anyway, my boys are oatmeal fanatics, and so am I. It's my favourite thing to have for breakfast. Tony is not a breakfast person, so he missed out on this. Too bad, he doesn't know what he's missing!
