Crock-Pot Steel Cut Oats.

After posting some pics of yummy crock-pot oatmeal on Facebook (all of which I cannot find, hence the Google Images photo above ... LAME, sorry), I had some requests that I post said recipe on my blog. I found this easy double-boiler method linked from my friend Leslie's blog. The Footy Pajamas household is quite grateful that she took the time to share it! It's super-easy. Plus, what's better than waking up to a breakfast that's already done?

If your breakfasts are anything like ours in our house, then a little preparedness goes a long way.

I add a little more water than the directions specify, simply because my crock-pot is rather ambitious when it comes to heating. Also, I made a rookie mistake of setting my crock-pot to "warm" for fear that the oats would burn and nay, they simply didn't cook. Be sure to set it to low. We mix our oats with bananas and maple syrup. Yum.

So, click on the link, and enjoy! We do, at least twice a week. :)

Have a lovely day.


  1. Yay! Thanks for posting - can't wait to try it!

  2. How about this plan: you make a batch, send Caleb and his delivery wagon to my house, and I'll sample the glorious oats. K? Sound good?? ;)
