I’m a big believer in breakfast, its a great way to start your day and feel fuller until lunch. On my current 1200 calorie daily diet, this is a great satisfying breakfast. In a hurray? This is great, you put it in the crock pot the night before and it cooks while your sleeping! Serve and go! One 1 cup serving is only 193 calories, 9 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein!
Overnight Oatmeal
4 servings, 1 cup each
4 cups water
1 cup steel-cut oats (also called Irish Oats)
1/3 mixed dried fruit (you could use cranberries, raisins or dried apricots)
pinch of salt
1. Combine water, oats, dried fruit and salt in a crock pot (spray with cooking spray before you place ingredients unless you have a non-stick crock pot).
Turn to low, put on lid and go to bed! Cook about 7-8 hours.
When you wake up, you’ll have a heart healthy yummy breakfast!

    This is GREAT to wake up to on a cold winter morning. The dried fruits make it sweet. I personally like the dried fruit selection from Trader Joe's.
