Slow- Cooker Spiced Vanilla-Pear Oatmeal
- 1 cup steel cut oats, dry
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 cup skim or low fat milk (or you can use almond, soy or coconut milk)
- 1 large (or two small) pears, sliced or chopped with skins
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbs brown sugar
Place all ingredients into the crock pot and let simmer on lowest setting for about 5-6 hours (definitely no more than 6 from my experience).
Sweeten with more brown sugar or add a tad more milk if needed when serving. It should be very thick and flavorful!
