Day 18– Steel Cut Oats
I have discovered the best way to feed my family a hot breakfast without even having to get out of bed, I’m a genius…ok maybe not a genius, just lazy…
It’s a 4:1 ratio. 4 cups water 1 cup steel cut oats. With my family I have to 1.5 times the recipe, so I add one and a half cups oats to 6 cups of water. Put it in a bowl inside of your crockpot fill with water around the outside of the bowl, set on low and cook all night. It takes me 5 minutes to throw it together before I go to bed. In the morning they just scoop some out and enjoy. Sometimes I add apples and cinnamon, some vanilla… but most days just plain because the kids like to add their own toppings. Some of our favorites–blackberries, blueberries, coconut, brown sugar, chocolate chips etc… Luckily everyone but Hallie will eat it, but I have no doubt she will come around soon. I love the texture of the steel cut oats, they are smoother and creamier than rolled oats.
Love this idea!!! I am for sure going to try this! I need all the help I can get in the mornings! Thanks! 🙂 Love the zoo! I have not been to a zoo in years!
