Health Tip of the Day: Over-Night Oatmeal

Mornings can be pretty hectic, espcially when you're crunched for time. Breakfast is often skipped because of time but with a crock pot and this recipe, you'll wake up to a nutrious meal with little effort.


Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal


Unsalted butter

8 1/2 cups of water

2 cups steel-cut oats

1 (14-ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk or 1 3/4 cups whole milk

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Coat the inside of the slow cooker with a thin layer of butter. Add the water, oats, coconut or whole milk, brown sugar, and salt and stir to combine.

2. Cover and cook on low until the oats are cooked through and creamy, about 7 to 8 hours. Stir in the vanilla and serve immediately.

Top with fruit and nuts if you'd like! Or change up the recipe to make it your own. Steel-cut oatmeal is not only satisfying, but extremely healthy for you. So let your slow cooker do the work while you sleep and wake up to a delicious way to start the day.
