Overnight Slow Cooker Oatmeal

I make this recipe for steel-cut oats at least twice a week. It makes just enough for all four of us and the boys love it. Plus, you can't beat a warm, healthy, hearty breakfast that only takes 1 to 2 minutes to prepare! I like to cook the oats with some cinnamon, then we add our own toppings. The kids like frozen blueberries, which also help cool things off for them. Hubby likes raisins & milk and I like brown sugar, milk & blueberries. Make it your own & enjoy!

Overnight Slow Cooker Oatmeal

1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water
pinch of salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

You'll need a slow cooker and a separate bowl with a 5 cup capacity. In a glass or other oven-safe bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. Set bowl into slow cooker. Fill slow cooker crock with water up to line in the oats bowl...almost like a double boiler (see photo below). Put lid on slow cooker and cook on low overnight.
