Wake Up to a Weekend Steel Cut Oatmeal Meal
Posted on March 3, 2014
Welcome to the 9th installment of Slow Liz’s 2014 Slow Cooker Challenge!
Ok, so I had my first Slow Cooker failure. But when at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. And oh how I tried. And oh how sweet success tasted… especially with a side of Minneola juice!
- Get out your crockpot.
- Butter the bottom and sides.
- Add 1/2 cup steel cut oats.
- Add 1 cup of water.
- Add 1 cup of almond milk.
- Add 2 heaping spoonfuls of brown sugar.
- Add 3 dashes of cinnamon.
- Add a capful of vanilla.
- Stir, cover, and turn on low.
Then you play with your dog and go to bed.
When you wake up:
- Spoon into bowls.
- Top with banana slices, blueberries, and a splash of almond milk.
Breakfast isn’t complete without orange juice. So I made some. Added benefit? It’s a good workout for your squeezers (aka grip).
Interestingly, the drug interactions between statins and grapefruits are not existent in Minneolas. There is a chemical compound called furocoumarins that are expressed in grapefruits but not in Minneolas or other tangelos. So feel free to wash down your meds with your Minneola juice.
This breakfast may actually become a staple. Next time around I might make a bigger batch, because what good is a crockpot meal if you don’t have leftovers? Don’t add fruit or anything else into the crockpot. You can add the extras after. The first recipe went awry because it wasn’t simple enough. So yeah:
Tip o’ the Day: Keep it simple.
