Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal made with wholesome Steel Cut Oats. This easy slow cooker oatmeal recipe can be made hours ahead and enjoyed any time of day.
I’ve got another wonderful slow cooker recipe for you today. One that you can enjoy in every season…
Slow Cooker Oatmeal.
My family has been begging me to make oatmeal lately. And not just the quick instant packets, but “real oatmeal” as they call it. I don’t mind. Real steel cut oats are nutrient rich and a great way to fill your belly first thing in the morning.
The only problem is, steel cut oats take time to prepare… Time we don’t always have as we’re rushing everyone out the door.
Therefore, I’ve started making Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal with hearty steel cut (Irish) oats and light and tasty Silk Soymilk.
The kids wake up to a hot creamy crock of oatmeal they top with all their favorite add-ins, and I get to sleep a little longer.
Adding Silk Soymilk to the Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal not only makes the oatmeal extra rich and silky in texture. It also adds a hearty serving of plant-based protein that is low in saturated fat and has no cholesterol! Silk Soy Milk is non-GMO and has more protein per serving than any other non-dairy milk.
So anyone (even those on a dairy free or vegan diet) can enjoy a satisfying power-packed bowl of steaming goodness!
This easy Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal recipe is a fabulous pre or post workout meal. Loaded with fiber and plant-based protein from Silk Soymilk, it keeps you full without weighing you down.
I like to have a bowl about an hour before my workout so I have plenty of energy to push myself.
It’s also nice to have a post-workout bowl of oatmeal loaded with fresh berries, toasted nuts, and a sprinkling of coconut. It tastes like a treat, but doesn’t undo all your hard work!
You can make this Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal recipe with original or vanilla Silk Soymilk and it’s completely delicious. However, I like to make it with Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk, to lower the sugar and calories for me… Then let the kids add a little brown sugar or honey to the top if they want a touch of sweetness.
Doesn’t that look glorious?
Put your crock on at bedtime and this Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal will be ready and waiting for you first thing in the morning. Keep it on warm throughout the day for when the kids come home, or you are craving a snack. Oatmeal is a great anytime meal!
