Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Oatmeal, gluten free

Waking up to healthy oatmeal feels like you have a personal chef, better yet, if someone makes your coffee too :) This fibre filled breakfast will keep you full, and adding protein from milk or nuts can help sustain your energy all morning. How great is that! We can also sneak in some healthy fats, some iron and Vit C…that’s even better!
