Slow Cooker Snickers Oatmeal – the Oatmeal of Cheryl’s Birthday

Slow Cooker Snickers Oatmeal

I do have at least one or two savory surprises this week, but I just had to share the birthday oatmeal I made for Cheryl. She’s been asking for this oatmeal for the past 3 weeks. I had trouble wrapping my head around a vegan, oatmeal sub for the nougat. Then it came to me – almond butter mixed with the vanilla So Delicious yogurt. It tasted exactly like nougat to me, so Cheryl got a bowl of birthday oatmeal instead of a cake! (That’s what she wanted, so don’t think I was being mean.)

This oatmeal has a base of vanilla yogurt layered with almond butter nougat and topped with chopped peanuts and chocolate chips. Feel free to drizzle some brown rice syrup or agave to mimic caramel.

I didn’t want the chocolate to overwhelm the nougat so I put it on top instead of adding it to the oatmeal. Just add 1 tablespoon cocoa to the oatmeal if you want to amp up the chocolate flavor.

Slow Cooker Snickers Oatmeal

Serves: 2 or 3

**This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that's 1½ to 2 quarts
  • ½ cup Country Choice Organic steel-cut oats
  • 2 cups Unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
nougat topping:
  • 4 tablespoons Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
other toppings:
  • 1 tablespoon vegan chocolate chips, whole or chopped
  • 1 tablespoon peanuts, whole or chopped
  • 1 tablespoon agave, brown rice syrup, or maple syrup to drizzle like caramel
The night before:
  1. Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later.
  2. Add oats, pineapple, cinnamon, and So Delicious Coconut Milk.
  3. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours). You can mix the nougat topping ingredients now and store in the fridge overnight.
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. Layer each serving with the nougat topping and top with whole or chopped chocolate chips and peanuts.

    Hi, I am new to your site and also new to vegan, am I right in guessing that the yoghurt you used here is made of coconut milk? My son is soy intolerant so that would make my whole life a lot easier, but I’ve never seen it here (I’m in Australia), I will have a look but is there a way I could make something like this with coconut cream? Thanks :)

      I think you could use coconut cream if you can’t find the coconut (which is vegan btw). You can also use any vegan yogurt that might be in your area. You can even make your own in a slow cooker!
