Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats *get oats marked gluten-free
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 2 Tb cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp stevia
  • 1 Tb agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Instructions

  • The night before:
  • Put everything in the slow cooker except for the almond milk. If you haven't used stevia before you may want to start with ⅛ of a tsp and add more later. Stevia gets bitter as soon as you add too much.
  • Cook on low 8 hours.
  • In the morning:
  • Stir the oatmeal and add the almond milk. Now you're ready to have some chocolate for breakfast!
  • Try topping with cocoa nibs, slivered almonds, coconut, etc.
