Sounds tasty. I love oatmeal.No where near the quality of cook Bobby has exhibited but struggling with simple things and enjoying it immensely. Having pre-diabetes, it was suggested using oat meal for breakfast instead of a regular diet of fried or scrambled eggs or cereals like Cheerios. After reading up the best breakfast foods for those with pre-diabetes decided to try steel cut oats and was pleasantly surprised. Making the oat meal suing steel cut oats is the game changer and it doesn't taste bland.
Using a crock pot, add four cups of water, one cup of steel cut oats, and a few other things for flavoring then cook on low heat for seven - eight hours. The oats become more creamy with long cooking time. It yields nearly six servings and can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. I add 1/2 apple cut into small pieces, cinnamon and vanilla extract, it doesn't need sweetener and has a nice flavor. It sticks to your ribs and lasts all morning as the fibre digests much slower than regular oat meal the steel cut oats being the secret.
Just a simple recipe from a novice but one that perhaps others might enjoy for a change of pace.
