Crock Pot Oatmeal

This is a huge hit at our house.... especially with my husband.  He loves eating oatmeat while at work... so the night before he leaves I make this in the corckpot and it is ready for him in the morning... and the house smells amazing!!!  I use Maple Syrup because I try to never use refined sugar... besides... it's a great sugar substitute... if you don't have any Maple Syrup you can use 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar.  Here is what you will need....

Crock Pot Oatmeal
2 Cups of Steel Cut Oatmeat
8 Cups of Water
1 Tablespoon Good Vanilla
1 Cinnamon Stick
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
Pinch of Salt

This is what Steel Cut Oatmeal looks like... it is so delisious... almost nutty!

Throw everything in the Crock Pot and I usually set on 6 hours.

This is what it looks like when done. I keep a Plastic Container in the fridge full of this delicious oatmeal and eat throughout the week.

You can add raisens, nuts, cranberries, blueberries, ... my kids pour a little french vanilla creamer in there..

  1. I literally discovered steel cut oats about a month ago. I could never stand to eat regular oatmeal, made me gag. I LOVE steel cut oats! I usually eat them with some dried cranberries and a bit of brown sugar. Yums
