This slow cooker breakfast is great to prepare the night before. Steel cut oats, apple, sultanas, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla slow cooked all night.
Use steel cut oats or this will be a mushy mess. Also, if your slow cooker cooks too high, cook on the warm setting.
Fantastic. Couldn't find steel cut oats so substituted rolled oats. Doubled the quantity, but used less water (2 cups rolled oats, 4 cups of water). Put all ingredients into slow cooker and soaked them overnight. Switched on the cooker first thing in the morning and cooked on high for 1 hour. Apple pieces still a bit crunchy (even though I cut them into tiny bits) but no biggie. Had to cut back on the cinnamon though. Too overpowering. I am now using 1 teaspoon for the double quantity. My husband loves this porridge and we are eating it everyday. Leftovers heat up pretty well in the microwave with a bit of extra water. A great winter staple. - 04 Aug 2013
