Slow Cooker Maple Oatmeal with Fruit & Nuts (lower fat version)

Submitted by: CAITY100

Introduction

I found this in BJ's Fall Journal, and it is a great meal to wake up to in the morning, and because I used low-fat butter and lactaid fat-free milk, it's healthy, lactose and guilt free! Keep in mind it takes 8 hours in a slow cooker, so put it together the night before, and be sure to use a reynolds slow cooker liner (this way you don't have to clean up the mess!).

Ingredients

    2 cups fat-free lactaid (you can use regular milk)
    1/4 cup pure maple syrup
    1 tbs butter (I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter)
    1 Cup Steel Cut Oats (you can also use regular quaker oatmeal)
    1 cup apple, peeled and chopped (or substitute apples for bananas, peaches, etc...)
    1/2 cup raisins (or substitute raisins for dried plums, apricots, etc..)
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts* (or pecans or almonds)


    *I left the nuts out of this recipe, and out of the nutritional info because I prefer to stir some peanut butter into my bowl of oatmeal in the morning!

Directions

Line the cooker with reynolds slow cooker liner.

Before heading to bed, combine all ingredients in cooker, mix well.

Cover, turn dial to low, and cook 8-9 hours.

When you wake up the next morning, stir, serve, and enjoy!
