Slow Cook Oatmeal Bar for Easy Breakfast - Kids Love it!


  Customizing oatmeal is a fun and easy way to offer your family a healthy breakfast they will like before work or school.  This is a real time saver and I like customizing to your own tastes.  It's a simple slow cooker oatmeal you can put on the night before and wake up to a hot and hearty breakfast. Before you head to bed, grab your slow cooker and coat the inside with butter to keep the oatmeal from sticking.  Add the following:
8 1/2 cups water, 2 cups steel cut oats, 1 3/4 cups whole milk OR 1 (14 ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk, 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt
Cover and cook on LOW until the oats are cooked through and creamy.  About 7-8 hours.  Stir in the vanilla and serve Immediately.

Set out bowls, spoons, and the following toppings in bowls so everyone can dish out the oatmeal and top it with their favorites  

Dried cherries, dried apples, cinnamon, blueberries, brown sugar, coconut, sliced bananas, pineapple chunks, sliced peaches or strawberries and don't forget the maple syrup, butter and milk for creaminess.  

Enjoy and Happy Tuesday!
