March Madness Day 8: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Makes 4 servings

1 cup steel-cut oats
1 Tbsp butter
4 cups water
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Sliced apple

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat.  Add steel-cut oats and stir for about 2 mintues.  Transfer to the slow cooker.  Add in the water, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.  Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or on HIGH for 2-3 hours.  Serve with milk and sliced apple on the top. 

I just love steel-cut oats.  I love the hearty taste and the texture.  The apple adds a touch of sweetness and a crispy crunchy yumminess. I ate this after I had run 8 miles.  8 miles, people.  Appreciate me.  Please.  Needless to say I ate 2 bowls, some toast, and an egg.  I was full until about 3 pm. :) 4 stars

    What are the health benefits of using steel cut oats as oppose to regular rolled oats?

  4. MaryLynn, I'm not sure if there is much difference in the healthiness of steel cut oats vs rolled oats. I just really like the texture of steel-cut. They seem heartier to me.
