Steel-Cut Oats – Crockpot Style

We are on our 4th round of crockpot oats – they are that delicious! Jemma inhales a generous portion every morning and I love them too! It’s so nice to have a filling, scrumptious breakfast each and every morning. You’ll be sorry if you don’t add this to your weekly menu!

1 cup steel cut oats (we like Bob’s Red Mill, but I’ve also found great deals in the bulk section)

Original recipe found here

4 cups water
1/2 cup milk or cream
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cored and diced apple

Add everything into your crockpot, give a quick stir, and set on low for 8 hours. Wake up in the morning to the smell of breakfast heaven and dig in! Moments later —–> you’ll be dishing up seconds for mama and baby :)

My crockpot switches to warm automatically so I usually start it around 9pm, it cooks until 5am, and then warms until 8 or 9. Sometimes the edges get a little crunchy, but nothing to worry about. 

… Oh so many ways to follow along …

I haven’t seen as good of results from the microwave instant ones. Don’t be alarmed at the lack of “instant-ness”, you can make steel-cut oats in your crockpot. […]
