Berry Oatmeal

This was supposed to happen 2 weeks ago, but alas, here it is!!!!  The inspiration for this recipe came from an Alton Brown recipe on  My good friend Helen told me about it when I told her nothing but breakfast foods sounded good! (Thanks Helen!)  I added some tweaks and am happy to bring it to you!  It was BERRY delicious!  Hahaha!!!  My daughter was THRILLED to try the "Purple Oatmeal!!!!"

Berry Oatmeal

1 cup Steel Oats (found in the same place as regular oatmeal)
1 cup Craisins
1 cup dried blueberries
4 cups water
1/2 cup milk (I used 2% lactose-free)
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon

Place all ingredients in the Slow Cooker insert and stir.  
Cook on LOW for 8-9 hours or HIGH for 5-6.
