Slow Cooker Wedding Cake Oatmeal – My Favorite Snowball Flavor

I lived in New Orleans for 12 years. One of the things I looked forward to was the snowball stands re-opening when the weather got warm. They had dozens of flavors and even more combos. My favorite was the wedding cake flavor which is a mostly vanilla almond flavor. Every good snowball stand makes their own syrups so the snowballs taste slightly different depending on where you go.

This oatmeal has a vanilla almond base with a hint of coconut from the extract if you use it. It’s creamy and rich, a perfect way to welcome Spring.

Slow Cooker Wedding Cake Oatmeal

2 to 3 servings

**This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that’s 1 1/2 to 2 quarts

  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill steel-cut oats (they have a gluten-free one as well)
  • 2 cups Unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract (optional)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons sweetener

for topping:

  • 1/4 cup Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Yogurt + paste from 1/2 vanilla bean

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later. Add everything except sweetener and toppings. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours).

In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should become a more uniform consistency.  Stir in sweetener.

Top each serving with the vanilla creme topping. It will add sweetness and extra vanilla flavor.
