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.

  1. Oh my goodness!!!  This is the best slow cooker oatmeal recipe I have ever tried. I was skeptical about the amount of liquid, but it was perfect. I forgot this was even steel cut oats when it finished.   It was creamy and smooth. I did two things different.  I did not have cooking spray so I buttered the crock pot.  And I didn’t have almond milk, but I had pea milk so I used that,  still turned out perfect.  

  2. I see this makes 12 servings, but what is the serving size?

  4. Can you use a liner? A co-worker says she places a bowl inside the crockpot then fills the pot with water halfway up the bowl otherwise the oatmeal burns along the edges. Is that necessary?

  5. I just want to make sure the ratio of fluid to oats is correct b/c it seems like there’s a lot more liquid vs oats compared to normal oat recipes. I use 6 C soymilk and 8 C water for 3 C oats? Thanks!

  11. For men do not use Soy Milk. Soy isn’t good for anyone really, but especially men. It raises estrogen levels. Switch out the Soy milk for Almond, or Coconut milk.
