Overnight Slow-Cooker Oatmeal For A Crowd

slow cooker oatmeal

There are few things more comforting on a cold winter morning than a bowl of hot, comforting oatmeal. And if you didn’t have to lift a finger that morning, it’s even better. :-) Overnight oats and oatmeal are getting a lot of attention these days, and it’s easy to understand why! Instead of laboring over the stove before breakfast, a few minutes of prep the night before will yield a crockpot full of warm, oatmeal-y goodness in the morning. Perfect for a house full of guests on Christmas morning….or really ANY morning!

This recipe uses steel-cut oats, which are a great source of fiber, as well as yummy pears and cinnamon. It’s like an oatmeal take on apple pie, but with pears!

  • Don’t have a crock pot? Try this easy, no fuss way to prepare steel cut oatmeal. The night before, using a four (water with a pinch of salt) to one (steel cut oatmeal) ratio, bring water to a boil, add oatmeal, bring to a boil again, stir briefly, remove from heat, cover with lid. Voila, perfect oatmeal in the morning ….and it doesn’t stick to the pot so easy cleanup! Reheat briefly in pot or bowls. Add your usual favorites, fruit, nuts, milk, etc. Yum!

    • I use a similar technique for brown rice that is perfect every time. If I want rice in the morning for breakfast I just heat 4 cups water with 2-cups brown rice. I bring it to a boil for 1-2 minutes. I have a ceramic stovetop so I just turn the rice off, walk away, and when I gt up in the morning it is perfect to use, and you haven’t destroyed all of the nutrients. I add what I want to in the rice and enjoy!!
