Description

It’s the steel cut breakfast of champions: oatmeal. I promise to make you regular as a goose. My dad always said that. Actually he said “poop like a goose.” Ok, are you ready for the greatness? It’s made IN THE CROOOCKPPOTTTT (that’s crockpot).

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Steel Cut Oats (Not Regular Rolled Oats)
  • 4 cups Water
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon

Preparation

1. Combine ingredients in a crock pot.

2. Plug crock pot in.

3. Cook on low for 8 hours!

Your house smells sooo delicious in the morning, and you get to sleep in an extra five minutes, because your breakfast is READY!

Many add-ins are possible: chocolate chips, flaxseed, honey, nutmeg, grated apple, cherries, peanut butter, cranberries. Let me know what your favorite add-in is!

What size crockpot?

I guess you couldn’t get away with regular, not quick, oats?

I made this last night and it turned out great! At my husbands request I doubled the recipe which was not needed it made a lot! The only change I made was I used 6 cups water and 3 cups milk. In a regular batch it would be 3 cups water and 1 1/2cups milk. We both added a little butter and brown sugar to our individual bowls and I added a little cinnamon. I look forward to doing this again and adding nuts and craisins at the end. Also for those who complained about cleaning the crockpot. After removing leftovers, fill your crockpot with water just over the oatmeal line, replace lid, turn on high and let it set for a bit. Use pot holders and pour out water and it wipes clean. Easy!!

I LOVE steel cut oatmeal! For someone who is only cooking for one, how long would you recommend the oatmeal be in the crockpot? I’ve already tried reheating the leftovers and it doesn’t work so well…

I’m not sure what happened with my attempt at this recipe, but it was not good. I love steel cut oats, so I was excited about the thought of letting the crock pot do the work & that it would be ready in the morning. I have a big crock pot, so I doubled the recipe; I was afraid that it would get dried out since I didn’t have a small crock pot. I also used a crock pot liner, as I had read other reviews about the oatmeal making a big mess. I followed the recipe ingredients without any changes. I cooked on low for over 8 hours and then gave up–it was still way too “soupy.” My husband and kids didn’t like it either, even after we tried to doctor it up with brown sugar, maple syrup, pecans, etc. We each ate a small bowl, and then I ended up throwing the rest out. It smelled yummy, the texture was just not right compared to any other steel cut oats recipe I’ve tried. I don’t know if using the large crock pot (doubling the recipe) or using the liner was the problem–but I don’t think I even want to try again to find out. Sorry.

I made this last night, and is the second recipe I have used for crockpot oatmeal. I had never used steel oats before, and I wonder if I am expecting them to taste more like those instant oatmeal packets. Just can’t get it sweet enough. But that is my problem, I know. This is so easy and absolutely wonderful to wake up to a hot breakfast. My husband ate two bowls of it He just mentioned to add more brown sugar next time. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing.
