Got a busy morning ahead? Get ready the night before with this easy Slow Cooker Orange Cranberry Oatmeal and wake up to a healthy breakfast waiting for you.
My slow cooker is my secret kitchen weapon! I use it all the time. In fact, I’ve had several going at the same time on more than one occasion. However, it’s underutilized as a breakfast cooker….until today.
Oatmeal is a great choice for breakfast and gets me started on making healthier choices during the day. Using my slow cooker to always have something ready and waiting for me is a must when I’m trying to watch my waistline. Otherwise, I’m tempted to grab something quick and not as healthy, like a sugar loaded donut or muffin when I’m out taking the kids to school or running errands.
I love using SPLENDA® Sweetener Products since it’s such an easy swap for traditional sugar. Check out all my recipes using a SPLENDA® Sweetener Product.
