from Keeping Up
2 cups steel cut oats (not quick or old-fashioned oats)
6 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large apple, peeled and diced
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Stir together ingredients in a greased crockpot. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. To cook for 8 to 10 hours, add 1 additional cup of water. Serve oatmeal topped with sliced bananas and toasted nuts, if desired.
Simple, easy, healthy, wonderful smelling breakfast to wake up to. A little preparation is needed at night, but that's it. Sometimes I leave the apples out. I never add raisins because they are not my thing. I love fresh or frozen fruit on the top. Steel cut oats can be purchased at just about any grocery store. I like to buy mine in the bulk foods section at Winco. Talk about cheap!
