Maple Oatmeal with Dried Fruit and Sweet Spices Recipe-12263

Comments: 0


Here is another fabulous overnight oatmeal made with steel-cut oats. It is strong on the spice, so cut back to ½ teaspoon if you would like just a whisper. If you prefer a richer flavor, toast the oats on a baking sheet at 350°F for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Yield: Serves 2


  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • ½ cup raisins or dried cherries, dried blueberries, or sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice, or ground cinnamon mixed with a pinch of ground cloves, nutmeg, and allspice
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or granulated maple sugar, plus extra for serving


1. Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours, or overnight.

2. Stir the oatmeal well and scoop into bowls with an oversized spoon. Serve with milk and maple syrup or sugar.


Cooker: Small round

Setting and cook time: LOW for 7 to 9 hours
