As school begins, it’s time for that familiar morning hustle! Even if you don’t have kids, most of us still need to hustle in the morning, or would love to make our mornings more leisurely! Breakfast is so easy to make in the slow cooker and dishes like oatmeal you can put in before you go to bed and wake up to an amazing hot breakfast!
This Berry Oatmeal is SO simple!! You can add a sweetener of your choice if you choose, but the natural sweetness of the berries is plenty for me!
This recipe comes from the brand new Welcome Home Diabetic Cookbook, a hard-cover binder-bound (so it lays flat!) cookbook with 450 diabetic friendly recipes for the slow cooker, oven and stove-top. Each recipe contains an Exchange List Value and Basic Nutritional Values as well. It can be found just about anywhere books are sold in stores or online at places like amazon (which I usually find to be the least expensive) by clicking here.
