Oatmeal is one of those breakfasts (or snack) that is perfect for filling you up to tide you over until the next meal, at least I find that's the case for me... plus, you can top it with so many different combinations of nuts, berries, natural sweeteners, etc., that the options are limitless!
I've always been meaning to try steel-cut oats though, as opposed to quick-cooking oats. The nutritional difference between the two seems to be pretty debatable between different publications and research online so I won't really go into it, but with steel-cut oats being less processed and chopped up, that just makes sense to me as the better option of two good things.
The problem is though, that they take too long to make first-thing on a busy weekday morning, (as least for me). So when I saw this idea over on Naturally Nina, to make them overnight in a slow cooker, I couldn't help but think, genius! Ready to go as soon as you get up, add your toppings, and breakfast is served. Great idea, right?
