I follow the recipe that Mimi uses except I alternate what I put in it.
Some weeks I use 1 cup soy milk for some of the water and add pumpkin pie spices, 3/4 cup pumpkin and leave out the pears and apples.
My favorite is substituting strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries for the fruit.

This is still my favorite breakfast, snack or dessert anytime of the day.

SLOW COOKER STEEL CUT OATS WITH APPLES AND PEARS

Quick and easy to prepare!

COOK AHEAD for the whole week! (especially if you're in a hurry in the morning)

Take it to work and heat it up. you'll be less hungry during the day.


Absolutely DELICIOUS!
I eat it every day once or more, for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

2 points per cup following the recipe as is.


NOTES!
1. you can make a smaller amount.
2. The amount of water has to be 4 times the amount of oats.
Example:
For 1/2 cup steel cut oats, use 2 cups water
3. This recipe makes enough for the whole week.
4. You may add raisens, dates, dried crunberrie, or other dried fruits, if you wish, while counting your points(calories).
Check Trader Joe's for wonderful selection of dried fruits.
5. I like to eat it hot with vanilla soyslender milk (you can use skim milk)
6. You may add pinch of ground cardemon, cloves, pumpkin spice......
7. It fills you up (HIGH FIBER: 8 grams per 1/4 cup dry steel cut oats plus high fiber in apple and pears)
8. I add splenda to taste and 1 TBS. of DaVinchi sugar free, fat free syrup (0 calories per 1 TBS.)
9. I add (for additional points) 1 cup berries
(I buy frozen berries at Trader Joe's)
11. It's also great with 2 TBS. FF (or low fat) cottage cheese
12. YUMMY with 1-2 tsp. low fat PEANUT BUTTER (for additional points)!!!


INGREDIENTS

4 small pears, peeled, seeded, and diced
4 smallapples, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats (I like the organic Steel Cut Oats Hot Cereal by Arrohead Mills)
6 cups water (or up to 7 cups water)
1 stick cinnamon

METHOD

Put everything in the slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on LOW.
Refrigirate.

****************************************
**************************************

OTHER IDEAS FROM OTHER WW MEMBERS!

3 1/2 cups skim milk
3 1/2 cups water
2 cups steel cut oats
2 cinnamon sticks

Cook on low 4 hours

****************************************
**************************************

If you don't want to do it in the crockpot:
1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water

pour water and steel cut oats into large saucepan, bring to rolling boil, cover, remove from heat and let sit a few hours (or overnight) until water is absorbed.
When the majority of the water is absorbed, I add cinnamon then divide up into small bowls for easy reheating during the week.

You can add bananas or spiced apples before you reheat.
You also can add 1 tsp of oil and some sf coffee flavoring at this time, along with a splash of fat free milk.

****************************************
**************************************

Spiced Irish Oatmeal
6 servings

3 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 dash ground cloves or ground nutmeg 3 cups nonfat milk

Combine ingredients. Cook on low setting in crockpot 4 hours.
Makes 3 cups (six 1/2-cup servings).

****************************************
**************************************

Steel cut oats with apples and cranberries

1 1/2 cup steel cut oats
6 cups milk/water (half milk, half water - depends on my milk supply)
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
2 apples, peeled and diced fairly large
1/2 cup or so SF caramel syrup (like davinci)
cinnamon, nutmeg to taste

Cook on high for about 4 hours. Refrigerate, then scoop out individual servings to reheat daily.

***If you prefer your apple with a bit of crunch, add it during the last hour.


WHAT ARE STEEL CUT OATS?

Steel-Cut Oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into only two or three pieces. They are golden in color and resemble mini rice particles.

How are they different from Rolled Oats?
Rolled oats are flake oats that have been steamed, rolled, re-steamed and toasted. Due to all of this additional processing they have lost some of their natural taste, goodness and texture.

What makes Steel-cut Oats so special?
Grains are essential to a healthy lifestyle and form the foundation of the food pyramid Steel-cut oats are inherently full of nutritional value and are high in B-Vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber while low in salt and unsaturated fat. One cup of steel-cut oatmeal contains more fiber than a bran muffin and twice as much fibre as Cream of Wheat.

I usually have a ww yogurt with berries and some fiber cereal on top of it.
On alternating days I have 1/2 cup of oatmeal with berries and a little yogurt.
I save omelets of the weekends..I like mushroom, spinach and zucchini ones with egg beaters.

Lately I've been having a small onion bagel with one wedge of Laughing Cow Light French Onion cheese (4 points), plus a WW yogurt (1 point). Seems to hold me over much longer than my cereal and milk breakfasts.

total just came out with a new cereal called cinnamon crunch. It's tastes like cinnamon toast crunch for grownups. It has moved into a new favorite of mine. I also like egg beater omelets and oatmeal.

Every morning I eat oatmeal, fruit and yogurt. However, when I get bored with that I have been known to have a WW english muffin with a banana & better N' peanutbutter on it. The whole thing is about 3-4 points!

My usual breakfast when I am home is 1 1/2 oz Old Fashioned oatmeal (makes 1 cup when cooked), 1/2 c blueberries, peaches or papaya, 1/2 cup 1% milk, and one sliced hard boiled egg. That's 2 bread, 1/2 milk, 1/2 fruit, and one protein. I think it comes to 5 points in modern language.

I find this the smallest meal I can eat for breakfast; the fiber in the longer cooking oatmeal and the fat and protein in the egg keep hunger at bay longer than any other choice in that calorie range. If I have to go the whole morning without food I skip the fruit, which is yummy but just makes me hungry faster.

Cook an egg in the bottom of a wide bottomed coffee cup (Not tapered and narrow) in the microwave. I spray a squirk of oil in cup so it will come out easy. The egg takes on the round shape of the cup and fits perfectly on a toasted english muffin! Throw on a slice of lean turkey, ham, canadian bacon(choose which one) and some low fat cheese and you have your own version of an egg mcmuffin. Figure your own special recipe for WW points.

Whats your ideas?
