Crock Pot Oatmeal

As promised, here is the recipe that I use for my crock pot oatmeal. I modify it, of course, to my taste and you can too! The next batch I make will be blueberry coconut oats... mmmmm

I began with my steel-cut oats to which I added an apple (chopped), 6 chopped dates, vanilla and cinnamon. I stirred everything together.

Next I added the liquid, 4 cups of 1% milk and 1 cup of water:

Next I placed the heavy bowl in a water bath in the crock-pot and turned it on low...

Let it cook all night (about 6-7 hours)

And woke up to a hot bowl of yummy goodness!!! This make a lot (the bowl is FULL) and it will last me the week. This is a week of never being tempted by bread because I KNOW what I am eating... it works for me and I can't wait to taste next week's version!

Have a great day!
BTW, blogger keeps flipping this picture upside-down... not sure why!
