Overnight Oatmeal

If I don't have the cranberries and figs I just use 2 cups of raisins. Sometimes we like to add walnuts or pecans and shredded coconut. I also throw in a little brown sugar. We roll our own oats and I don't know if that's the same as steel cut, but that's what we use anyway. This is really good and easy!

Buon Apetito!

Overnight Oatmeal

1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup dried figs
4 cups water
1/2 cup half-and-half

In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat. Cover and let cook for 8 to 9 hours.
Stir and remove to serving bowls. This method works best if started before you go to bed. This way your oatmeal will be finished by morning.
