Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Oatmeal Bowl

Oatmeal with Maple Syrup

How great is oatmeal on a cold winter morning? Pretty darn great if you ask me. Warm, comforting and simple to make, oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast items.

I’ve come to learn to enjoy Irish steel cut oats and the Crockpot is a perfect way to cook it to its nutty, slightly al dente yet creamy texture. Set the oatmeal in the slow cooker when you go to bed and wake up to a perfect bowl in the morning!

Directions:

  • Find a heatproof bowl that fits inside your Crockpot with a bit of space around it. Add enough water to the Crockpot for it to be half full. Place the empty bowl in the Crockpot.
  • Add the water, oats and salt in the bowl and stir to combine.
  • Turn the Crockpot on low and cook for 5-8 hours.

Serve with golden raisins, maple syrup and warmed, light cream.

  1. So, if I gather your thought, I use a slow cooking bain Marie ? I’ve gotta try that. Don’t know if I can find your kind of oats though. Thanks for an original idea !
