I picked the Foodie background for my page because I really do like cooking.
For a hot, healthy morning breakfast that takes hardly any effort at all, we often eat Crockpot Oatmeal. It’s really great for diabetes because it is low glycemic, has great fiber, and keeps you feeling really satisfied through the morning. Plus, eating breakfast everyday lowers bad cholesterol.
One cup Steel-cut oats (or Irish oats). These are not like old fashioned or rolled oats.
4 cups water
1/2 cup half & half cream/milk
1 cup dried fruit. Sometimes I use chopped dried apricots or raisins and dried cranberries
A shake or two of cinnamon
Spray your crockpot with Pam or other spray cooking oil. Add ingredients. Turn on “low” overnight, or for eight hours.
In the morning, give it a good stir and serve. It’s really good with yoghurt and Splenda. Serves 4 hearty portions. I refrigerate some and nuke it in the microwave for breakfast the next day.
