Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats

slow cooker steel cut oats

Really the worst thing that Corner Bakery has done to me is given me a taste for steel cut oats. Aagh I was so fine with quick cook oats, so easy. Steel cut oats in a slow cooker is just about as easy, though. I'm not gonna lie, they're not as good as standing over the stove stirring for forty minutes. But you know what else is good, cooking while sleeping.

1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water

Before bed, put the oats and water in your slow cooker set on LOW. Go to bed.

Haha, that's it.

When you wake up, fix whatever you want to put on your oatmeal, sweet or savory.

Okay one more thing, you might want to butter your crockpot beforehand, you get a pretty serious, not burnt-on, but shall we say browned-on crust overnight. You can eat that, by the way, if you can unglue it from the crockpot.
