Happy #TastyTuesday Divas!
Today I want to give you all a very simple recipe that I came across for oatmeal. I love oatmeal, but because I’m always rushing I’m usually a “grab an oatmeal packet and go” type of girl. I usually eat the Quakers Apples and Cinnamon Oatmeal or the Maple and Brown Sugar (best ones out there in my opinion lol). Since I am always rushing it never even crossed my mind to actually make my own oatmeal so when I saw a slow cooker steel-cut oatmeal recipe I decided I wanted to try it. I just came across the recipe a few days ago so I have not had a chance to make it yet but I wanted to share it will you all.
I got the recipe idea from WebMD, here. I will tweak the recipe because I won’t be making a serving of 8 but you can freeze it to keep it fresh if necessary. Also, instead of using dried cranberries and apricots I will use cut up apples and cinnamon, that way I have my own version of apple and cinnamon oatmeal, yum! I like this recipe because you cook this oatmeal overnight (for 7-8) in the slow cooker and wake up to some already made hot oatmeal. Simply combine the ingredients in the crockpot and let it cook.
For some, including me, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. This oatmeal cooks overnight and is ready in the morning so I can still do my grab and go.This homemade oatmeal has less sugar and less sodium which is good. Making your own food versus buying prepackaged is most times better because you are more aware of what is going into your food.
I am going to try to make it this week so I will let you all know how it turns out. Do you all make your own oatmeal? Do you prefer homemade over instant? Let me know in the comments below.
I hope you all have an awesome day and don’t forget to get GLAMfit!
