Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal – The Oatmeal to Calm Your Stomach

Welcome to day 4 of love your oatmeal week! Today’s oatmeal reminds me of my favorite quick bread. Since this is cold and flu season, you may find yourself with a tummy ache at some point. Ginger is a great way to soothe your tummy. Plus it tastes good too!

Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal

Serves: 2 or 3

**This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that's 1½ to 2 quarts
  • ½ cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 cups Unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons sweetener (I used agave)
  • For serving: raisins (optional)
The night before:
  1. Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later.
  2. Add everything except agave and raisins.
  3. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours).
In the morning:
  1. Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should become a more uniform consistency.
  2. Stir in agave or other sweetener.
  3. Top each serving with a few raisins if you like.

      Thank you so much for your kind words and post. Perhaps I’ll have a So Delicious creamy soup week sometime soon too.

      I guess I better bring out the big oatmeal guns for the rest of the week! ; )

    I am not a HUGE fan of the coconut milk brand you recommend and I was wondering if you could use canned coconut milk instead?

    • Kathy Hester says

      You can, but it will be much heavier and have lots more calories. Just use your favorite kind of nondairy milk or even water.
