Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Coconut & Almonds

A super easy and fast way to eat a healthy breakfast, everyday.  Cooking steel-cut oatmeal in the slow cooker makes enough to last all week.  Just add your favorite fixins.  We use coconut, brown sugar and almonds.  Just re-heat in microwave, add garnishes and enjoy a healthy breakfast in a hurry!

Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Coconut & Almonds

While traveling recently, I was gifted with this healthy and super tasty breakfast.  The coconut and almonds really made this meal and the brown sugar made it sweetly perfect.

I was excited to learn how easy it was to make this and keep in the fridge.  Eating well in the morning is not easy.  Starting off with coffee, I usually get sweetly distracted until it’s time to go.  I rarely have time to eat anything healthy or tasty so I settle on toast.  Toast is my favorite go-to but it’s not filling so I end up eating a second breakfast later.  Not a good plan.

While visiting family in Tacoma, we had this for breakfast.  It’s perfect.  I love it and they do too!  They keep this in the fridge always, and now I do too!  Thank you Jason and Rebecca:)

I often make a big pot of steel cut oatmeal in the winter, but I've never tried it in my slow cooker. Such a good idea!

Thanks Julie, I really like making enough for the week so that I have not excuse to eat well.

I have a container of steel cut oats that I haven't made. Your idea of using the slow cooker is perfect. I do like coconut and nuts so that would be one morning breakfast. I may just do another with pure maple syrup and pecans. YUM!! I'm getting all sorts of ideas. Thank you!

Pure maple syrup and pecans sounds amazing! I might have to try that too:)
