Crock Pot Oatmeal With Dried Fruit

Steel cut oats and your favourite dried fruits make for a delicious breakfast that's ready and waiting for you when you roll into the kitchen for breakfast. There's absolutely no need to add any sugar to the oatmeal, as the sugars in the fruit take care of that for you. Use any combination of fruit you have on hand; I've used apples, prunes, dates, apricots, cranberries, raisins, cranberries, strawberries, and pineapple and all are great but my favourites are apple/raisin, and dates all by themselves. From the manual that came with a Cuisinart slow cooker.

    Tasty, simple and thoroughly satisfying. I used 4 cups of water and it was cooked to perfection in exactly 3 hours :). The cranberries add a yummy sweetness to it and a nice cinnamon flavor throughout. Will make again with different fruit next time. I just love steel cut oats!
