1. Overnight Oatmeal With Dried Fruits
If you’re a fan of crock-pot cooking, this breakfast recipe is for you. Overnight oats take very little preparation and you’ll wake up to the aroma of freshly cooked oatmeal ready and waiting in the kitchen — perfect for those cold, drab winter mornings. Oats are known to be heart-healthy, good for reducing cholesterol and a great source of slow-release complex carbohydrates to help you power through your day.
Ingredients (serves 8):
2 cups of oats (steel cut work better in a crock-pot as regular oats can become too soft if cooked overnight)
1/3 cup of dried apricots
1/3 cup of dried cranberries (or other dried fruits such as currants, sultanas, goji berries)
8 cups of water
pinch of salt if desired
Simply add all the ingredients into the slow cooker and stir. The oatmeal will need to cook for about seven or eight hours on low. Alternatively, the oatmeal can be made on the stove in a regular saucepan, mix all the ingredients together and stir over a medium heat until the oats soften (approximately five minutes).
