I used Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats. Do not try to use quick oats or any other kind of oats. Only steel cut will work for a slow cooker recipe. Believe me, I tried it before! Purchase from Amazon or via VitaCost ($10 off $10 coupon).
Not only is this delicious, steel-cut oats are much healthier. Rolled oats are produced by mashing the oat groat into a thin sheet, which breaks down the fiber. Steel-cut oats are simply cut into two or three pieces. Thus, they take longer to digest than rolled oats because they are more complex and have less factory processing.
