I found a way to eat Steel-Cut Oats every day for breakfast. When I'm up early for our morning walk I don't have much time to cook breakfast. Steel-cut oats take 30 to 40 minutes to cook, but this recipe is awesome. Just put a few ingredients in the crock pot and walk away. Five hours later your daily breakfast is ready! Once a week I cook a batch and put it in the fridge. Every morning I scoop out a cup of oats, add some non-fat milk and microwave it for about 45 seconds. Give it a good stir to beak it up and then add a handful of blueberries, half a banana, and some agave nectar. A great nutritional breakfast in only one minute.

Spray the inside of the crock pot with cooking spray. Add all ingredients and stir.

I add blueberries, banana, and agave syrup.
