Ginger Peach CrockPot Steel Cut Oats

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My family can’t really agree on what we like to eat for breakfast. I much prefer oatmeal, a smoothie or some yogurt while Dewey wants bacon and eggs. I usually go along to get along but I’m looking for ways to make sure I a) eat breakfast and b) don’t have to make something new every day. CrockPot Steel Cut Oats to the rescue!

Quick, rolled and steel cut oats all start out life as groats…the whole oat grain. Steel cut oats are the least processed of these varieties. Their cooking time is longer and their texture is chewier. This texture difference makes steel cut oats PERFECT for meal planning. Making a big batch in the slow cooker means you have enough for the entire week and they reheat much better than quick or rolled oats.

All you have to do is store in the refrigerator and microwave each serving of Crockpot steel cut oats as you need it. Give it a drizzle of cream and it will taste just like new. Yum! It’s also great to take to work with you for breakfast at your desk.

Making CrockPot Steel Cut Oats

I love that this recipe is basically a “dump and cook” recipe. Throw everything in, stir it around, cook and done.

I so rarely eat oatmeal because I Can't find a good recipe. This looks like it wouldn't bland and has a lot of flavor. I might try it!

Mmmm oatmeal -- One of my favorites as well! Thanks for the yummy recipe - I have been trying to use my crockpot more often so this was perfect.

Looks yummy. How much is considered a serving of this? (I gotta watch my carbs...) There's good Instant Pot steel cut oats recipes too but I guess you can't use dairy milk to cook the steel cut oats in the Instant Pot for some reason.

Honestly I just guessed on serving amounts. The uncooked oats portion is only 1/5 of a cup per serving (i.e. one cup uncooked and makes 5 servings).
