I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com. What a great idea…dump everything in the crockpot the night before and in the morning, bam you have breakfast ready for you and your family! As the recipe author notes below, make sure you use the steel cut oats and not rolled oats or it will get mushy. Also, some people recommended that you could substitute some of the water for some milk. This makes 6 servings. Mmmm…
- Place the steel cut oats, water, apple, raisins, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into a slow cooker, and stir to combine and dissolve the sugar. Cover the cooker, set to Low, and allow to cook 6 to 7 hours (for firm oats) or 8 hours (for softer texture).
Important: Use steel cut oats or this will be a mushy mess. Also, if your crock cooks too high, cook on the warm setting.
