Why yes, two posts in a week - both on crockpots!
I made another attempt at crockpotting oatmeal overnight, and this time it was a success! *flails*
I used an Alton Brown recipe, doubled it, modified it a wee bit, and adjusted the cooking time - sort of.
Overnight Oatmeal - adapted from Alton Brown
- 2 cups steel cut oatmeal (also called Irish Oatmeal) - I had problems locating this - I got mine from the local Trader Joe's.
- 8 cups of water
- 1 cup half and half
- couple pinches of salt
Mix together. Cook on low for a couple hours, turn down to warm overnight, turn on high for 2 hours or until done in the morning.
Add one packet of splenda, fresh berries, mini chocolate chips, bananas, coconut, etc...YUMMY!!
(AB differences: his recipe did not call for the salt or cinnamon, was cut in half and had dried fruit in it. I "might" reduce the liquid a little bit next time since there is no dried fruit to rehydrate, although it really worked out great.)
I divided the oatmeal in one cup servings and froze what I didn't eat. Will thaw and add the extras for quick breakfasts on the go!
Weight Watcher Points = approximately 4 points without topping. Add 2 points for 1 TBSP of chocolate chips, 1 point for 1 TBSP of shredded coconut.
Tomorrow, I plan to add caramel, chocolate chips and coconut - Samoa Oatmeal!
Next up to try is Pumpkin Oatmeal!
