Cranberry-Maple Slow Cooker Oatmeal (AKA Soupy Oatmeal)
From: Weight Watchers Weekly January 8-14, 2012
This is one of my kids' favorite breakfasts. They call it Soupy Oatmeal.
8 cups water
2 cups steel-cut oats
2/3 cup chopped dried cranberries (I use Crasisns and I do not chop them, and I use 1 cup)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp table salt
3 TBSP Toasted, slivered almonds (we never use these)
Combine all ingredients, except almonds, in a 5-to-6 quart slow cooker. Cook on low power for 4-6 hours, depending on desired creaminess. Stirr well to combine and then sprinkle with almonds (if desired). Yields about 3/4 cup oatmeal and 1 tsp almonds per serving. Serves 9.
We like adding milk and cinnamon-sugar to the oatmeal in the bowl we serve it in.
6 points plus (weight watchers) per serving
I put the on before bed and it is not over done in the morning, and it goes 8-10 hours and does fine.
