A few weeks ago, I went to Starbucks and tried their steel-cut oats for the first time. I was impressed. It was actually delicious.
After eating up every last oat, I told myself I need to make another valiant effort at cooking the healthful breakfast. Thankfully, I had exactly 1-cup of steel cut oats left at home. But I needed a plan. I did what I do best and started researching.
It wasn't long before I stumbled upon this amazing recipe Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats by Sugar-Free Mom. It calls for pumpkin.You can never go wrong with pumpkin, right?! I had most of the ingredients. I just needed to go to Publix for the can of pumpkin.
I pulled out my crock pot. And started loading it up with all the ingredients. It took me all of 10 minutes to prep everything.
This is what I woke up too:
|The oatmeal overcooked a tad. I assume because my crock pot goes on warm after.|
|It was nothing a little scooping up and stirring couldn't fix.|
|I added my own little twist to the recipe and added walnuts.|
Now I am hooked and need to make another pot. :)
