Slow Cooker Cranberry Orange Steel Cut Oatmeal is easy to make and super delicious too. When I first tried steel cut oats I could barely eat them. They were the most bland food I had ever put in my mouth. I think I tried to sweeten it up with some brown sugar and cinnamon but I just couldn’t stomach it. I learned how to make them in a slow cooker with flavors and spices and now they are a part of my regular breakfast menu. This recipe makes enough for me to eat breakfast throughout the entire week. I just throw everything in the slow cooker and wake up to a delicious hot breakfast.
