Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal

This recipe is for those busy and cold days when you need a hot and healthy homemade breakfast without much effort from your side. The slow cooker does all the work. You can make several days' worth. Cooked oatmeal can be refrigerated and warmed up in a microwave easily. What I love about this is that each family member gets to dress up their bowl with their favorite toppings! It is so yummy, it could almost be a dessert.

Ingredients :
Steel cut oats-1 cup
Water- 4 cups
Butter- 1/2 tsp
Salt-1/4 tsp
Milk- 1& 1/2 to 2 cups

Coat the insert of the slow cooker with a thin layer of butter. Add the water, oats,  and salt and stir to combine.
Cover and cook on high until the oats are cooked through and creamy, about 4 hours. Add the milk and stir .
Serving suggestion:
We love to have the oats with a sprinkle of some cinnamon brown sugar or plain brown sugar or coconut sugar, along with some raisins and nuts. Some other toppings we love are: craisins, sliced almonds, coconut flakes, maple syrup and dried raspberries.
Any leftovers can be refrigerated and then nuked as needed.
