This recipe is from our wonderful Kara!

This has been an AMAZING breakfast!

*Spray the inside of a two or three quart crockpot with cooking spray.

*Pour in one cup of steel cut oats.

*Pour in four cups of water.

*Pour in half a cup of fat-free half and half.

*Pour in one cup of your dried fruit of choice.

*Sprinkle with cinnamon.

*Cover and set to low for eight to nine hours.

*Drizzle with agave nectar before serving.

My favorite so far has been dried cranberries and then about an hour before the oatmeal was to finish, I diced up some fresh apple and stirred it into the mix. The apples got warm but not mushy and it was SO good!

I also love to add walnuts, after the oatmeal's cooked.

:drool: I made this for breakfast for DH and I today and it was SOOO good, Kara! :T Thank you so much!

I used half dried tart cherries (sweetened) and half unsweetened cranberries and added some sliced almonds after it cooked. I haven't talked to DH yet, but I can't imagine he couldn't have loved this!

This didn't work too well in my crockpot the first time because my crock is too large. But I tried this method today and it worked perfect! :)

I was short on oats last night and made an emergency substitution. Next time I will do this intentionally - it was really good.

1/2 c steel cut oats
1/4 c wheat berries
1/4 c quinoa
4 c water
dried blueberries & peaches
sweet spices

Cook on low overnight, add chopped walnuts & heat through. This has the mixed texture I really like in hot cereal, smooth and creamy with nice little bitey bits :)

Cyn have you ever done this with 1/2 cup Quinoa or all Quinoa?

I've tried a few methods and found this one works the best....

1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup non fat dry milk
4 cups water

I put this mixture into a pyrex bowl, large enough to hold it all, but small enough to fit into the crockpot. I put 2 cups of water into the crockpot, then place the bowl in the crockpot. I usually do this in the evening, before I go to bed, and it's ready when I get up. It makes 4 servings.

I add chopped walnuts, cinnamon and a little skim milk. A few raisins or blueberries when I have them.
