Slow Cooker Wedding Cake Oatmeal – My Favorite Snowball Flavor

Slow Cooker Wedding Cake Oatmeal

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.

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

    OMG, that looks so delicious! Three of my most favorite things: coconut, vanilla, and almond! (I even wear those very same essential oils!) I love the idea of serving this oatmeal in a glass. I am making this today!
