- Coat the inside of the 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker with cooking spray or oil (trust me - this saves a TON of cleaning!!) Add all ingredients and stir to combine.
- Place the lid on the slow cooker and turn it to low for 7 hours (overnight) Resist the urge to lift the lid of the slow cooker as this adds an additional 30 minutes of cooking time to the recipe...trust me, the aroma will escape no matter what!
- Serve topped with nuts, raisins or maple syrup and ENJOY!!!
