I recently looked up the copyright laws and leaned that individual recipes in cookbooks aren't protected by the copyright and so I can't be sued for posting one. I have modified this recipe slightly from the original, but the source is Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two: For the Small Slow Cooker.
This recipe is supposed to work best in a 1.5 quart slow cooker. I do it in my 4 quart, and generally prefer to double it.
3/4 cup steel-cut oats
1/2 t apple pie spice
pinch of salt
2 3/4 cups water
1/2 cup half and half (or evaporated skim milk if you prefer)
6-8 rings of dried apple, chopped (Sean prefers it with one whole granny smith apple chopped, but I think its better with dried, if you don't have dried, use a regular one)
a handful of raisins.
Combine everything in your slow cooker and cook on low for 8-9 hrs or high for 3-4. My slow cooker only needs 4.5 hours on low and if I do it on high it doesn't cook the oats all the way. If you have a normal slow cooker you can do this overnight and have yummy oatmeal in the morning.
I like to add more half and half (I'm crazy like that) and some brown sugar..mmmmm yum.
