Crock Pot Steel Cut Oats and Apple Breakfast Recipe
(Rancho Palos Verdes)
Steel cut oats are often called Irish Oats. They have lots more fiber than regular or quick cooking oats. But, they take a lot more time to cook ..... which I do not have.
So I discoved this method and add one apple per serving.
Each serving is 1/4 cup dry steel cut oats and for each serving made, I use 2 cups water and one apple.
Ingredients for one person serving:
1/4 cup Steel cut oats
2 cus water
1 apple, cored and cut into large chunks - any apple you like
optional : sugar and cinnamon or maple syrup
Spray slow cooker/crock pot with non-stick spray.
Add your water.
Add your steel cut oats.
Add cored, cut up apple. You can peel it or not. I leave the peeling on. And I like large chunks.
I do this before going to bed, so that when I wake up, my healthy and hearty breakfast is ready !
Turn slow cooker/crock pot on low.
Cook for 8-10 hours.
Optional: after finsihed cooking - stir, add sugar or sugar substitute and/or cinnamon to taste , I have also added sugar free maple flavored syrup.
I have a small 2 quart slow cooker for one or two servings and have made 6 servings in my larger 5 quart slow cooker.
Crock Pot Oatmeal and Apple
A great recipe and a great commentary with it.
I will be looking for some steel cut oats next time at the store as Neil and I always love our morning oatmeal.
