Description

My friend Mitchy is 40 and has a killer body. I asked her what was her secret, and she said, “Hippy Oatmeal.” I was disbelieving until I made it and tasted it. This is full of so much great stuff, and with breakfast being the most important meal of the day, it makes sense to get off to a great start. And this is so easy, you literally dump the ingredients and forget about them until the next morning. Try it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 4 cups Water
  • ½ cups Half-and-half
  • ¼ cups (handful) Dried Cherries
  • ¼ cups Dried Cranberries
  • ½ cups Raisins
  • ¼ cups Pumpkin Seeds, Or Sunflower Seeds Or Almonds
  • ¼ cups Flax Seed

Preparation

Toss all of this into your crock pot. Then simply set it on the lowest setting right before you go to bed .

When you get up, you will have the smoothest, creamiest oatmeal ever to start your day.

Give it a nice big stir. Top it with brown sugar, cream, maybe a little butter, perhaps, if you want to. It is naked as is.

It sticks to your ribs, stays with you, and is a fantastic breakfast.

Let me know how you like it!

On a whim last night, I decided to shake in some dried orange peel and I think it really woke it up a little bit! With and without are great, but the hint of citrus is surprisingly yummy!

WOW, give the girl 5 mitts! We loved it. Hippy oatmeal is easy and delicious. I made it exactly like the recipe and wouldn’t change a thing.

I made this recipe last week for my family. I had some troubles on the first run with ours.
First-Our crock-pot has 2 hot spots, so it burned the oatmeal right to the inside! we overcooked it, and our nuts were too soft! I also think we used too much flax. (side note: whole flax or ground?) I over-sweetened my own-and the kids decided in the aftermath-that syrup was not for them as the sweetener! SHEESH! try to do something healthy! LOL
BUT we are not swayed yet-and are trying again. Ive modified my personal version-and though it’s suppose to be simple set & forget-Im planning on setting an alarm around 4 so it will only cook 4 to 5 hours before we are ready to eat. I have all the dry ingredients all ready inside ready to go-just have to get up conveniently at 4am to feed my infant-and add the water and cream
I’ll report back!

This was delicious! I added extra cherries the second time I made it. And I like to use slivered almonds. Mine does get a thick skin on the top but I stir it well before serving and it looks just fine. Heaven knows it taste great!

Shoot! I am so disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly, set the crockpot to Low and ended up with a burnt up mess! What happened? Should I have used the Warm setting? That seems impossible! Advice, please!

This recipe is amazing! We had a roommate who left a whole bunch of steel cut oats. I’ve been using them steadily by making a crockpot of this wonderful recipe each week. It’s been especially wonderful in the winter time – quick, warm breakfast that I don’t have to get up early to make!

This is the absolute best! I like to use a mix of steel cut oats and whole oat grout, which is soooo yummy! My favorite thing to do is to use 2 cups water and 2 cups ALMOND MILK. Trust me, you will never have better oatmeal!

LOVE This!!! Hippy Oatmeal is the only oatmeal I have ever liked. I omit the nuts, double the flax seed and use whatever dried or frozen fruit I have on hand. Usually it’s frozen blueberries and dried raisins or cranberries. When serving, I add brown sugar or Agave syrup, sliced, frozen banana and 1 Tablespoon of chunky peanut butter – the nuts make it fabulous. The best part is that this recipe makes enough to eat it every morning for a week!
