5-Spice Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Submitted by: GEORGEVW

Introduction

Irish style (steel cut) oats are a great food, but take a long time to cook, so they're difficult for a weekday breakfast. Using the slow cooker overnight solves that problem. Chinese 5-spice powder (a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, two types of anise and cloves) gives it a wonderfully exotic flavor. We make a large batch and freeze it in cellophane wrap lined muffin pans, then bag the individual pucks. Depending on the size of your muffin pans, one or two oatmeal pucks in the microwave for a few minutes makes a quick and tasty breakfast.

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    2 cups Irish-style (steel cut) oats
    8 cups water
    1/4 cup raisins (or more, if you want)
    1 Tbl. Chinese 5-spice powder
    1/2 tsp. sea salt

Directions

Put everything but the salt in a slow cooker or crockpot and cook overnight (6-8 hours) on low. Stir in salt (adding salt early keeps the starch in the oatmeal from hydrating and gelling properly). Serve hot with soy milk or yogurt
