Slow Cooker Lemon Ginger Oatmeal

A quick note from your friend, Steel Cut Oats:

I know it’s summer, but I’m really starting to miss you. We both know that your Doctor thinks we’re a good team.  It’s about time for this little break to end.

So, as soon as you can, try this creamy, lemony oatmeal with a little ginger kick! It’s even made with your favorite – Unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk.

Just wait, you’ll see just how much you missed me too!

Slow Cooker Lemon Ginger 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
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons candied ginger, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sweetener (I used 1/2 packet Trader Joe’s stevia)
  • For serving: extra chopped candied ginger and lemon zest

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later. Add oats, non-dairy milk, and candied ginger. 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 lemon extract and sweetener. Top each serving with extra chopped candied ginger and lemon zest if you like.

    I love the idea of adding candied ginger to oatmeal, I have never thought about this combo, but I like both oats and ginger!
