I love a hot breakfast on a cold day, but I don’t always wake up in time to make one. This warm and lovely recipe is my favourite one to wake up to.

Steel cut oats are the least processed type of oat. Instead of being flaked, the oat groat has been chopped up into a few smaller pieces, leaving a very small surface area for nutrients to be lost. They’re a nutritional powerhouse! As well, they digest very, very slowly and can keep your tummy full and blood sugar steady all morning.

The only downside is they can take over 30 mins to cook, which can be difficult on a busy morning (or any morning for that matter!).

Using a slow cooker allows them to cook thoroughly and slowly while you’re in dreamland. Cinnamon is a healing spice that helps the body deal with sugars and grains easier (especially important if you are diabetic) and added a bit of sweetness by adding an apple and a touch of maple syrup.

Throw it together at night and wake up to the house smelling of baked apple pie and a hot breakfast to enjoy.

Prep time: 10 mins. Cook time 8 – 11 hours. (Serves 2)

Ingredients:

1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups water
1 cup unsweetened organic almond milk
1/4 tsp of vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup (less if using sweetened almond milk)
1 organic apple, chopped (I like to use Gala apples)
1 pinch sea salt
Add all of the ingredients into a small slow cooker, and stir. Turn on low and go to bed. This recipe is quite flexible, and can spend up to 11 hours on low if you sleep in.
*If doubling the recipe, use a large slow cooker and cook for 10 – 11 hours.
