This was another of my cold weather recipes. There's nothing better than waking up to something warm in your tummy when the temperatures are single digits. You can make this recipe in your crock pot while you sleep. I will confess I have made steel cut oats before and they had an odd flavor to them. I have waited a while before I tried them again. They are different from regular oats. I will show you in a minute. But these oats tasted more like regular. I have the leftovers in the fridge for the rest of the week. I will be making these again.
You put various add ons in the bowl before you eat. We'll talk more in a minute.
