Good Morning Oats

We eat oatmeal almost everyday and this simple 5-minute oatmeal recipe prepped at night in a slow-cooker makes for a tasty, easy breakfast in the morning. Even my two-year old absolutely loves helping to make and eat this!

It’s made with steel cut oats which flourish when cooked for a long time. It really does need 6-cups of liquid in the slow cooker – otherwise, it’ll be very dry. You can use any toppings you have on hand too.
