Tasty Tuesdays: Ritual Recipe – Slow Cooker Oats with Apples and Raisins

As I have said before, I love breakfast. So when I found this recipe, I knew I had to share it. It is incredibly easy because you throw everything in a slow cooker and let it cook overnight. To me, there is nothing better than a hot breakfast, especially one that’s ready for you when you wake up.

This breakfast will not only keep you full until lunch, it is also good for you. Naturally gluten-free, steel cut oats are high in soluble fiber and protein. Rich in antioxidants and fiber, apples may help reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. And cinnamon has been found to normalize blood sugar.

Slow Cooker Oats with Apples & Raisins
Serves 4
Ingredients
1 cup steel-cut oats
3 1/2 cups of water (or milk, almond milk, etc as desired)
1 cup apple, peeled and diced
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Grease the inside wall of a slow cooker with oil or butter to prevent sticking. Add all ingredients to the slow cooker and stir until mixed well. Cover and cook on low 7 to 8 hours overnight. It’s ready to eat plain or topped with a little more cinnamon, brown sugar and a few silvered almonds for crunch. Delicious!

By the way, I forgot to take pictures. Will post next time I make it. 🙂
