Using a crockpot to cook oatmeal is absolutely genius! Before bed, you can put the steel cut oats on to cook and wake up to the heavenly smell of cinnamon and oats — all ready to scoop into bowls and add toppings. This is especially good on a cold morning, but a great breakfast option any morning.
Oatmeal in the Crockpot
Prep Time: 2 mins
Cook Time: Overnight
- 1 Cup steel cut oats
- 2 Cups water
- 2 1/2 Cups milk
- 1 Tsp cinnamon
1. Place the ingredients in a crockpot and stir to combine.
2. Cook the oatmeal on low heat for 5-9 hours (the amount of time can vary depending on your crockpot. Some crockpots that don’t have non-stick surfaces can get hotter than others).
3. Stir in desired accompaniments and serve.
* I like to let the kids squeeze in their own honey to get them involved and swirl in a bit of extra milk to cool it down for them.
Honey, maple syrup, walnuts and or raisins.
