Healthiest Overnight Maple Oatmeal

Cathy Jacobsen


Mornings are hectic in my house so to combat the temptation to grab a cookie or some other unhealthy choice for breakfast I make this incredibly good and healthy oatmeal in the slow cooker once a week. It can easily be kept in the fridge and reheated each morning in just a few minutes! Packed with heart healthy oatmeal and other high antioxidants and energy boosters and low calorie and the taste is out of this world.
