Slow-cooker Whole Grain Breakfast

Submitted by: CHEEKEN

Introduction

Easy and delicious slow-cooker breakfast - makes your house smell GREAT in the morning! Easy and delicious slow-cooker breakfast - makes your house smell GREAT in the morning!
Number of Servings: 7

Ingredients

    1/2 cup dry Quinoa Grain
    1/2 cup dry Hulled Whole Grain Barley
    1/2 cup dry Whole Grain Oat Groats
    6 cups water
    2 tbsp ground Cinnamon
    2 tbsp ground Nutmeg
    1 tbsp ground Ginger
    1 tbsp Honey
    113 grams dried Apricots, chopped
    1/2 cup Golden Raisins

Directions

Throw Quinoa, Barley, and Oat Groats with the water into the slow-cooker/crockpot and set on Low, covered, overnight. In the morning, add Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Honey, Apricots, and Raisins and mix well. Let it cook another 30-45 minutes for the apricots and raisins to plump up a little.

Makes 7 servings of 245 grams each.

Note: Other whole grains can be substituted in this recipe, as well as any other dried fruits. I've tried it with dried apples and cranberries, and it was also very good.
I also usually pour 1/2 cup of soymilk on top, which gives it a creamier taste.
Seriously, this is really good. :)

    I love the idea of this breakfast and was really looking forward to it, but for me this was simply too mushy. I eat oatmeal all the time, but like some texture and this had none. I won't be making this again. - 9/14/12

    I liked the combination of grains but there was way too much ginger. I will definitely add some more sweetener. Next time I will leave the ginger out as well as the dried fruit and eat it with fresh fruit instead. - 7/5/09

    It was really easy to make, but I thought the spice were a bit too strong... Will probably make it again, but with different spice and maybe a bit more sugar... - 1/6/09
