Maple Steel Cut Oatmeal
This wonderful oatmeal is made with steel cut oats and maple syrup that I purchased at Bear Paw Scout Camp. While there, we also picked up some maple syrup lollipops. We served maple steel oatmeal with the lollipops for an extra special treat. If you’re a fan of maple syrup and steel cut oatmeal, this is the morning breakfast to get your day off right. Maple Steel Cut Oatmeal is my favorite way to eat my breakfast. Just add a cup of coffee and I’m off to start my day.
Steel Cut Oatmeal
Steel cut oats or Irish oatmeal as its some times called, is a hearty and thick oatmeal. Steel cut oats require longer cooking times vs old fashioned oatmeal. Steel cut oats are super good and good for you. If you haven’t made steel-cut oats before, what are you waiting for? Go out and pick up a box at your local grocery store or market. If you want to add an extra layer of yum to this already delicious oatmeal, stir in one shredded apple and a handful of chopped pecans.
One of my favorite recipes for slow cooker oatmeal,
- 2 1/2 cups steel-cut oats
- 6 cups water
- 2 cups almond milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup dried cherries optional
- 1 shredded apple optional
- 1/3 cup chopped pecans optional
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup raisins
Spray the inside of your slow cooker with a non-stick cooking spray. Add all ingredients to the slow cooker and stir. Stir in any optional ingredients. Turn slow cooker to low and cook for 4 to 6 hours.
Note: Due to temperature variations, this time is not approximate. My oatmeal was done in less than 6 hours.
