4 Slow Cooker Oatmeals Make Tonight for Tomorrow’s Breakfast!

It’s no secret that the weather has been cold. Do you know what’s better than staying under the covers in the morning? Waking up to the smell of homemade oatmeal and knowing it’s ready to eat! All of these recipes are for a 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cooker and make 2 to 3 servings of steel-cut oats.

Slow Cooker Maple Pear Walnut Cake Oatmeal is a great way to use up any pears you might have languishing around. I love the flavor of maple with pears and think you will too.

Slow Cooker Orange Carrot Cake with So Delicious “Icing” is packed full of carrots and orange juice and is topped with So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Yogurt to give you the decadent feel of eating icing for breakfast!

Slow Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal is the easiest way for vegans to get a dose of white chocolate. Most white chocolate is not vegan, but Peanut Butter and Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful is and mixes white chocolate into a peanut butter base.

Slow Cooker Pear Rose Cardamom Cake Oatmeal combines rosewater and cardamom with pears for a delightful breakfast that always lifts my spirits.

Have a great week and make sure to eat breakfast!

  1. Those look delicious!

  2. Hi Kathy, your beautifully presented recipes here are still in holding position due to my neighbourhood organic shop being sold out of oat groats for over six weeks now. Boo! They have a wait list for when the backorder starts to come in. Their oat groats are sold in tiny 500g (1lb) packages that go so quickly… Unfortunately that store is the only source of slow cooking oats that I know of–no steel cut oats even, anywhere. Otherwise I surely would have made these recipes and given you feedback. It ‘hurts’ a little even to see these and wish I could have a bowl for breakfast. Oh well! Enjoy them for me :) When they restock I’ll make the white choc in with a dark Belgian chocolate, to eat local. Mmm!

  3. Hi Kathy, thanks for your email :) nope, haven’t found pin oats or steel cut oats either! I went by the organic shop tonight and they were still out of stock. This weeked wil buy some regular rolled oats and make up a pot of these, but call the recipe ‘mush’ so the resulting consistency doesn’t shock too much :-P My toddlers love ‘Goodnight Moon’ and enjoy the bowl of mush featured in the story, so this might work for them.

    Hi Kathy, so as you know my organic shop finally stocked whole oat groats and I bought packages and packages of it! So now that everyone is enjoying their OATrageaous Oatmeals, wanted to share a little breakfast hack: I measure out the oats for 3 servings (two adults and two preschoolers) plus whatever other dry ingredient that can be added in and store in an empty glass jar (the smaller ones from jams etc. are perfect). If we want an oatmeal that uses a lot of fresh ingredients I put the fruit etc. (but not the liquid–the finished gets too mushy from pre-soaking) in a larger glass jar and store in the fridge before decanting into the slow cooker before bed. Because now that I’m 4mos pregnant I want pour ‘n’ serve breakfasts, and this way my preschoolers can help both with measuring over the weekends. I actually put the slow cooker on because they go to bed about two hours before I do. Yes, it *is* really easy to measure oats and then stir everything together without a pre-measuring session, but if anyone finds themselves in the same situation that I was in–wanting cooked oatmeal but having no energy to put it together at night–then this helps. Try it out!
