Not that oats are a big deal to make ever, BUT, it is so comforting and encouraging to have a hot nutritious breakfast waiting for you in the morning. These Crockpot Steel Cuts Oats are sweetened naturally with an apple cooked in them. I love it in a big bowl with lots of toppings – like fresh chopped apple, toasted walnuts & a sprinkle of cinnamon; or bananas & berries; or sliced peaches & toasted pecans; or shaved dark chocolate & coconut flakes. We could go on and on! The point is, steel cut oats are amazing. They are chewier, heartier, and fulfilling. They have immense health benefits. I’m a big believer in the power of oats to do everything from lower cholesterol to aid in weight loss. Enjoy! And, let me know what you top your oatmeal bowl with!

I created this recipe for Albertsons/Safeway. A grocery list is available for this recipe here.  For many more healthy recipes, you can follow them on Pinterest here
