Oatmeal in a crockpot

Postby Rocketgirl » Sat Apr 10, 2010 11:41 am

You can cook the steel cut oats in a crockpot and then wake up to a nice breakfast.... don't have to rush in the morning to get them going.

Here's my recipe:

Crockpot Oatmeal Recipe
•2 cups steel cut oats (not instant or rolled oats)
•6-8 cups water, depending on how long the oatmeal will cook
•1 tsp. cinnamon
•1/2 cup brown sugar
•1 tsp. vanilla
•2 apples, peeled and diced
•1 cup raisins or dried cranberries or dried cherries (or a combo)
•1 cup sliced bananas
•1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray. If you're planning to cook the oatmeal 8 hours or longer, use 8 cups of water. If you want to cook it less than 8 hours, use 6 cups of water. Put first seven ingredients (through raisins) in slow cooker and cook on low. Just before serving, Stir in bananas and walnuts. Sprinkle with additional brown sugar if desired.

I love 'em, but haven't found any since I moved to the hillside. I guess I've just got to broaden my shopping range.

That sounds good, although I would stop at the apples. The other fruits and nuts don't appeal to me.

Rocketgirl, thanks for the recipe. I like steel cut much better, but the time problem always holds me back. Because they are less processed, they have more fiber and are considered better for you, better at reducing cholesterol, etc. (nurse in my talking now).

Alton Brown has a crockpot oatmeal recipe similar to this with the steel-cut oats. His calls for buttermilk. First recipe I've ever found in which I like it better without the buttermilk instead of with; it's easy and good in the winters, and ready without a lot of fuss: you just dump everything in the slow-cooker the night before, plug it in and turn it on.

Doug,
I still eat red meat... But my intake has become a bit healthier.

I generally have a a bowl of the regular Quaker oats every morning, and never heard of steel cut oats. Will have to try it, thanks for the tip.

Been eating the Quaker Instant for decades - love the Maple and Brown Sugar best, but it's all good.
I have been storing the Steel-cut Oats in my preps, as I figure the metal can will keep them good for longer than a paper wrapper.....

Now, I gotta get a crockpot! Y'all make it sound SO scrumptious! :)

I've heard of steel cut oats but have never tried them. I'll have to go look for them.

I use "old fashioned" rolled oats -- not the 1 minute version, the slow cook version. But I make them in a unique way: Boil 1 and 1/2 cups of water in the microwave. After boiling, dump in 2/3 cup of rolled oats. Stir, let sit until ready to have breakfast (10-20 minutes .... or 1/2 hour if I'm driving to work before eating). The consistency is just right for me.

Then I serve with butter, salt, and brown sugar, as mentioned above. Yum!

I have oatmeal every other day but it's the 1 minute cook on the stove kind. Love it with frozen berries of any kind.

One good thing about oatmeal is that it is one of the few carbs that doesn't trigger your appetite. In fact it seems to have the opposite effect. Good stuff.

Rolled for me, steel cut for Wifey. I don't understand it. The texture of the steel cut oats is just all wrong for me.

I had never heard of steel cut oats until now! I do like a bit of texture in lots of different foods. I also like corn bread with burr ground meal from one of the local grist mills. I will have to try some!

Dean Are those any good with maple syrup?
