Slow Cooked Raspberry Mango Oatmeal - (cool) progeny

Mornings never smelled so good.

For real.

With fall’s busy season kicking into high gear, cooking breakfast is the last thing I have time to worry about. Which is why I absolutely love finding crowd -pleasing, healthy slow cooker options. Mangoes and raspberries are huge hits on my house, so I knew experimenting with them and oatmeal would probably be a sure bet in our house.

… and waking up to a house that smells like berry oatmeal is well, just plain heavenly.

Simple set-up. Just toss the ingredients into your slow cooker before you go to bed and wake up to deliciousness. Do take the extra 10 minutes and make the raspberry sauce. Like the baked blueberry coconut steel cut oatmeal that inspired this recipe, the sauce is what makes it swoon-worthy.
