This warm breakfast cereal made in the slow cooker is a great way to get your veggies in the morning and keep a healthy diet! For extra crunch, I garnish individual servings with ground walnuts or pecans.—Debbie Kain, Colorado Springs, Colorado
In a 4-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray, combine the first 7 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until oats are tender and liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with brown sugar if desired.
Pressure-cooker method: In a 6-quart electric pressure cooker coated with cooking spray, combine the first 7 ingredients. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 10 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. If desired, sprinkle with brown sugar.
