Steel Cut Oatmeal

My sad container of Steel Cut Oatmeal sat at the back of my cupboard for months and months…until last night. “Put it in the crockpot” my foodie friend, Rebecca, said. Genius!

No more stirring, no more simmering, no more standing over a pot of steel cut oatmeal…who has time for that?

Crock Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal

1. Coat your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Add four cups of water, stir in 1 cup of steel cut oats.

3. On low, cook for 8-10 hours.

4. In the morning, take the lid off, give it a stir, put the lid back on, wait 10 minutes, stir again, and enjoy the creamy goodness.

5. Now it’s all ready for mixing in all your favorites. I added some cinnamon, apples and a bit of non-fat milk to mine.

  1. This inspires me…I don’t have steel cut oats (oh, how I wish i did!!!) but I wonder if I could do the same with whole oat grains or whole wheat grains. Hmmmm?

  2. “Foodie friend!” LOL! What a great idea, indeed!

  3. I am honored to have graced the pages of
    your blog!! I pulled my Steel Cut oats out
    tonight to inspire me to make it for the
    morning. We’ll see………..

  4. I use the same oats – and similar stir-ins. My favorites are dried apricots or dried cranberries and cinamon. No milk for me, though. Have been enjoying your blog.

  5. Great Idea! I’m def. going to do this for a weekend or holiday or something.

  6. Karen – what a great idea! I will definitely be bringing out my little slow cooker.

    That container of oats is gorgeous – my Quaker oats sure don’t have such charm. 🙂
