Slow Cooker Banana Creme Pie Oatmeal

We’ve been eating a ton of bananas. So many, in fact, that I haven’t been able to cook much with them. Last week we didn’t eat any, so be prepared for a few banana oatmeals this week.

This oatmeal gets its ‘crust’ from a topping of crushed graham crackers. If you don’t have any try some granola or a crushed cookie.

Slow Cooker Banana Creme Pie Oatmeal

2 to 3 servings

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

  • 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 cups Unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons sweetener
    (I used agave)
  • For serving: chopped graham crackers

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later. Add oats, milk, and vanilla. 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 and mashed banana.

Top each serving with chopped graham crackers and more sliced bananas if desired.

  1. YUM! (enough said.)

  2. Could you sub 1 c water and 1 cup unsweetened almond milk for the coconut milk? Sorry if this question has been answered before, but I’m new to your great site! Thanks for any advice.

  4. Hi Kathy! So the corner organic shop has oat groats in stock now and I bought kilos of it! This was a huge favourite at our house this morning. We didn’t even have graham crackers and it was still magnificent. I would never have thought to cook oatmeal with coconut milk (regular canned coconut milk cut half and half with water to imitate the nutritional profile of So Delicious) and bananas… which like you when you came up with these banana oatmeals we had a surplus in our house this week. Not any more… So my 2yo was totally open to having bananas on his oatmeal, and he not only ate his he ate his 4yo sister’s non-banana version because she was trying look uninterested to vie for a portable breakfast to eat en route to swim class (a vanilla creme biscuit… alas, so no more for her today). Two bowls of oatmeal is huge for him! The shocker was my conservative eater DH also ate it, with no critical assessment that it lacked salt, an unnamed spice, yada yada as is part of French food culture. Caught me totally unprepared. I have to slightly increase the recipe to still fit in my mini crock so there will be enough for me next time. CHEERS!
