Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/2 cup pitted prunes (10 to 12), chopped
  • 1/2 cup dates (5 or 6), pitted and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon or ground ginger
Method

Generously oil the inside of a slow cooker. 

Combine oats, prunes, dates, cinnamon and 5 cups water in the cooker and stir well, breaking up sticky fruit with your fingers, if needed.

Cover and cook on low until oats are tender and mixture is thick, 7 to 8 hours.

Once cooked, uncover and stir well. (Oatmeal will thicken more as it cools.)

The oatmeal will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

(Suggested age: 10 months and up)
