Sahoor in a Crockpot

During Ramadan we are truly trying to be focused on our spiritual growth and well being. I love to get up and do the early morning 'amals and prayers. Quite honestly, there are some mornings that I am so involved in my worship that I don't want to stop and tend to alot of cooking. It can become a distraction. At those times, its nice to have a hearty sahoor that's already going and needs little to no attention.

Apple and Raisin Crockpot Oatmeal

1 cup old fashioned oats
2 cups water
1 cup milk, almond milk, coconut milk or rice milk
1/2 small apple, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
2 tbsp succanat or Rapadura
1/4 cup walnuts

Add all ingredients to your crock pot except for the raisins and walnuts. Turn your crock pot on to low and cook for 8 hours approximately. Add the walnuts and raisins 5 minutes before its done and stir well through the oatmeal mixture. Serve with extra sweetner and milk. Makes 4 servings.

Variations: you can substitute honey instead of succanat/rapadura, and you can leave out the walnuts if you want. You may also add dates to this version, just add them at the time when adding raisins and walnuts.
