Overnight Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal

The amount of water needed is based on how thick you want your oatmeal. Only add 6 cups if you like it really thick and 8 cup if you like it a little thinner.

Overnight Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal

6-8 cups water (see note above)
2 cups steel cut oats
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup dried blueberries (optional)

Lightly coat the inside of a 4-5 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker and stir. Cook for 7-8 hours on low. Stir thoroughly before serving with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Serve immediately. The leftover oatmeal can be portioned into tupperware-like containers and refrigerated to be reheated and enjoyed for 3-4 days.
