Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 ¼ cups water

Instructions

  • Program outlet timer to turn mini crockpot on 3 hours prior to breakfast time. Turn crockpot to "Low" setting.
  • Pour in oats and water and replace crockpot top. Go to sleep. =)
  • At breakfast time, stir oats and add desired flavorings. Enjoy!

Notes

Water to oatmeal ratio is roughly 3:1. I add the additional 1/4 cup of water as a safeguard to prevent sticking to the bottom.
Oats should cook a minimum of 3 hours. They can cook on low longer if desired. Cooking longer will produce a mushier consistency.
Add-in suggestions: honey, cinnamon, nuts, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie spice, fresh apples, blueberries, strawberries
