Make sure to use steel cut oats in this delicious Crockpot oatmeal breakfast recipe. You can find them in tins alongside ordinary rolled oats in the supermarket.
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 1 cup dried cranberries (and/or blueberries)
- 1 cup dates, chopped
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Spray inside of slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients except the half and half and honey in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.
- Stir in half and half and honey, and serve.
- If you like more texture in your oatmeal, you can toast the oats before cooking. Place them in a shallow layer on a cookie sheet and toast them at 350 F. for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once during cooking time, until oats are a darker gold color. Let cool completely before you combine with the rest of the ingredients in the recipe. Stir well before serving.
