The rest of the meat, I portioned out in the red containers and froze.

You can also mix everything beforehand, freeze, then use when ready!

Have you been searching for an easy and healthy breakfast for yourself or your kiddos? Love oatmeal, but tired of the packets where you just add water and microwave? Be ready to enjoy this slow cooker oatmeal recipe 🙂

Here are all the ingredients you will need-

1 cup steel cut oats

1 ripe banana mashed

1/4 cup chopped walnuts (if I know my 1 year old will be eating this, I don’t always add them in)

2 cups skim milk (or almond milk)

2 cups water

2 tablespoons flax seed meal

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

Banana slices, walnuts, or brown sugar- optional garnish

 

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in slow cooker and stir well until combined.
  2. Cook overnight on Low for 8 hours
  3. In the morning, stir oatmeal with a fork to loosen the steal cut oats and make sure everything is fully incorporated.
  4. Serve warm with banana slices, chopped walnuts, or a pinch of brown sugar if you wish.

 

 

All together this makes about 8- 1/2 cup servings. I portion them out and then microwave for 20-30 seconds. Sometimes I like to add a few mini chocolate chips 🙂
