- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 4 cups water
- 2 apples, diced
- 1/2 cup figs, dried chopped (may substitute other dried fruit)
Steel cut oats raise blood sugar less than rolled oats and have a heartier, more satisfying texture, but the downside is they take much longer to cook. Solve this problem by prepping them overnight in your slow cooker — they'll be ready by morning!
