Love steel-cut oats as a comforting breakfast idea?
Let your Crock-Pot slow cooker do the work overnight and wake up to a nice warm bowl of creamy steel-cut oats! This Crockpot oatmeal recipe provides such a yummy and EASY way to prepare a healthy and filling breakfast – perfect for a lazy weekend or busy weekday morning.
Why use steel-cut oats in your slow cooker oatmeal?
They give more bang for your buck nutritionally speaking, and are hearty and filling. Steel-cut oats are higher in fiber and iron than traditional rolled oats. Because of their thick coarse texture, steel-cut oats require a little more soaking, making them perfect for Crockpot oatmeal. This slow cooker method is a convenient hands-off way to prepare them!
Hip tips for making this Crockpot oatmeal recipe:
- If you have a dairy intolerance, you can use a different type of milk in your Crockpot oatmeal. This will work with water too, however, the result may not be as creamy.
- Make sure to prep your slow cooker with non-stick spray or a slow cooker liner first to avoid sticking. If your slow cooker runs hot, you could always create a water bath set-up by placing contents in a casserole dish first, and then placing about an inch of water in the slow cooker, that way it’s actually cooking in the casserole dish.
- Have a large family? You can easily double this slow cooker oatmeal recipe to feed a larger crowd.
