Slow-cookers aren’t just for dinner. “Steel cut oats are one of the best hot cereals but often get overlooked for a quicker breakfast. One of the challenges for those with a busy schedule is getting a hearty, healthy breakfast. Making this in a slow-cooker the night before makes this breakfast ready as soon as you jump out of bed.
It’s a better choice than grabbing a pop tart or filling your mug up with coffee. When you start your morning off with a healthy filling breakfast it sets the tone for the rest of the day and you start it off with lots of energy.
