Blueberries and Cream Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Here's another slow-cooker steel-cut oatmeal recipe.  I kind of put this together after making so many other oatmeals; you can pretty much make any flavor, as long as you keep the liquid to oats ratio the same.  Borrowing an idea from this Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, I used part apple juice for some of the liquid.  This provided sweetness without having to add much sugar.  Although, for good meausure, I did throw in a few tablespoons of maple sugar, because I had it around and enjoy using it.  You can leave it out or sub brown sugar.  If you can't get dried blueberries, try dried cranberries instead.
