A friend had posted a recipe for oatmeal made overnight in the slow cooker. As I usually do, I research and tweak. I wanted to firstly make it vegan, so eliminated the milk and butter with recipes I found. So, here's what I put together.
Steel cut oats – 1 cup
Water – 3 cups
Soy Milk – 1 cup
Melted Coconut Oil– 1 tbs.
Apples, peeled & chopped – 2
Brown sugar – ¼ cup
Kosher salt – 1 tsp.
Cinnamon – 1 tbs.
Put all ingredients in a slow cooker...no need to stir. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or 4 hours on high. Top with nuts, yogurt, fruit, jams, coconut shavings!
Here are all the ingredients before I turned on the pot.
And here it is in the morning!
It was really good! Creamy, not too sweet and filling!
**You can use any combination with the liquid – water, soy milk, almond milk, milk all work
