Weight Watchers Recipe
Prep time: 8 min
Cook time: 6 min
Simply stir the ingredients together before bed time and wake up to a comforting bowl of creamy, filling oats.
|8 cup(s) water|
|2 cup(s) Hodgson Mill Steel cut oats, or other brand|
|2/3 cup(s) dried cranberries, chopped|
|1/2 cup(s) maple syrup|
|1 tsp ground cinnamon|
|1/2 tsp table salt|
|3 Tbsp slivered almonds, toasted|
- Combine all ingredients, except almonds, in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Cook on low power for 4 to 6 hours, depending on desired creaminess. Stir well to combine and then sprinkle with almonds. Yields about 3/4 cup oatmeal and 1 teaspoon almonds per serving.
- Be sure to use steel-cut oats for this recipe as regular oatmeal will not hold up to this length of cooking. If you like your oatmeal very creamy, you can cook it up to 8 hours.
