Did you know that January is National Oatmeal Month? It is! And did you know that oatmeal not only tastes good, but is good for you? Oatmeal has beta glucan, which is known to help reduce bad cholesterol. It also contains lots of fiber to help cleanse your colon, carbohydrates to give you energy, and vitamin B to aid in memory and nervous system function. Who couldn't use a little help with her memory? 

Oatmeal can be used for so much more than just breakfast too. In this week's newsletter, I will share other ways to use this popular, inexpensive breakfast food. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Oatmeal 


If mornings are as hectic in your house as they are in mine, use your slow cooker to make breakfast! The kids still get a warm, healthy meal and you have less work! 





2 2/3 cups milk, can use low-fat

1 1/3 cups quick oats

1/3 cup brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup finely chopped apples or ˝ cup raisins

1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 cup of your favorite nuts

You will also need a 2-3 quart slow cooker


Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 6 or more hours

Serving Size: cup

Servings: 6 




Grease a cold 2-3 quart slow cooker with butter, then add all ingredients except nuts and stir to mix. Cook on low overnight. Oatmeal will be ready in 5 to 6 hours but can be left up to 8 or 9 hours. Stir before serving and top with nuts, brown sugar, or other topping of your choice.
