Apple Cinnamon Raisin Crockpot Steel Cut Oatmeal
Yield: 4 generous servings
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk (or 3 tablespoons unsalted butter)*
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • ⅓ cup raisins
  • ½ cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Almond milk, coconut milk, or regular milk for serving
Instructions
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a crock pot and stir well.
  2. Place crock pot on the low setting for 7 to 9 hours, until the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. If possible, stir the oatmeal part of the way through, but this isn’t mandatory. You can set it and forget it and wake up to a house filled with delicious apple cinnamon oatmeal smell.
  4. Serve generous portions of oatmeal with your sweetener of choice (honey or pure maple syrup recommended), almond milk, coconut milk, or regular milk, plus additional raisins and walnuts.
Notes
*You need to add some fat so the oatmeal doesn’t stick to the sides of your crock.
