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

Method:
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).

  1. In my experience, if you want to see real healing these recipes will help but wouldn’t kick it. That needs a ketogenic diet, that is if you want to rival the drugs. It requires full-commitment, is far from easy but it heals. Really heals. These recipes are a good start but not enough.

    I started keto 5 days ago. Was trying to do paleo… kept cheating. But have not cheated on keto all week! Must be cuz I added cheese back to my life!!! Someday it be removed again, but for now I am doing great! Down 2 pounds on 3 day weigh in too! Liking this plan!

    Oats are inflammatory as well as many dried fruits! Keto is the way to go especially for MS. Good fats help our mental clarity and improve the connections. Do your research.

      I didn’t realize that oats are inflammatory! What about gluten-free instant oatmeal? Seems like I don’t feel as well as I would hope, after eating GF oatmeal. I think I’d like to try the keto diet, too.
