Breakfast made easy!

We try to avoid processed foods around here. I am always looking for easy ideas for quick and easy breakfast foods. This one is my favorite

Steel cut oats in the crock pot.

This can be divided in half for a smaller batch

*2 cups of steel cut oats
*8 cups of water
*1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil
*1 cup of dried fruit
*brown sugar to taste. We use 1/2 cup

Place all of the ingredients in the crock pot and give it a stir. Cook for 4-8 hours depending on the texture that you and your family like.

I store half of this in the refrigerator and freeze the other half. To freeze, let the oatmeal cool and fill 2 ice cube trays with oatmeal and freeze. After 4 hours take the oatmeal out of the ice cube trays and place in storage bag.

This is so easy. I just heat as much as we are going to eat. It stores great and is soooo yummy! Enjoy!
