This is a great alternative to a slow-cooked breakfast when you’re short on time. I woke up one morning realizing I had forgotten to make overnight oats the night before. I tried out an idea in the multicooker and it turned out great! Serve with fresh seasonal fruit; my favorite are spring and summer berries. —Mary Anne Thygesen, Portland, Oregon
