Slow Cooker/Crockpot Steel Cut Oats

In our house we love Oatmeal we make a batch every night and in the morning everyone doctors it up to their taste.  We have a great method for cooking it so that it doesn't stick to the sides of the Crockpot.  Here are a few ways that it can be doctored.
  • 2-3 Tbsp of sugar-free syrup, 2 Tbsp of PB2, and 1/4 cup of frozen raspberries or blueberries. When I am feeling like I need a little more comfort food I add a Tbsp of real butter.
  • 1 scoop of protein powder, a splash of milk, and some frozen berries.
And here are a few alternatives for adding things when cooking it.  We add Chia seeds to our standard base to add a bit of protein to the mix and slightly boost the fiber.
  • Roni makes hers with Pumpkin
  • For Apple Pie, add 1 apple cored and diced into small pieces (with the peel on) and your standard mix of Apple Pie spices.
  • For blueberry, add 1 cup frozen blueberries.  

Steel Cut Oatmeal

  • 1 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 4 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 4 cups Water
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl that will fit inside your slow cooker.
  2. Place a towel in the bottom of your slow cooker and place the bowl with the oats on top of it.
  3. Fill the slow cooker with water until the waterline outside of the bowl is the same as the waterline inside the bowl.
  4. Turn on low and leave overnight.
  5. In the morning use a turkey baster to remove enough water so that you can take the bowl out of the slow cooker.
