I ran across this on the internet and it looked intriguing to me. I haven't tried it yet so I can't vouch for how it will turn out.
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 1 apple, coarsely chopped
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 1⁄2 cups skim milk
- In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat.
- Cover and cook for 8-9 hours.
HINT: I think stirring the steel cut oatmeal causes it to break down and makes more of a mush, so leave it alone until done then stir gently with the handle of a wooden spoon. Another, even easier, way to cook steel cut oatsâ€¦ Bring 3 cups water, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1-cup steel cut oats to a boil. Let it boil for about 1 minute. Cover the pan and remove from heat. In the morning, put what you'll eat into a microwaveable bowl and warm it up or itâ€™s good cold also. Options: add Splenda, sugar, maple syrup, milk, cinnamon, dried or fresh fruits, or what every you like.
I love this. I use the cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg but in a bit less quantity as allspice and nutmeg can be bitter and I use all water and no milk. Thank you!
This is a big mistake. Smelled great, tasted lousey. Very mushy. Don't bother.
