Satisfying Steel Cut Oats

Satisfying Steel Cut Oats

So I finally had the chance to do this again, in a smaller batch – making steel cut oats in the crock-pot.  It worked out really well and I have breakfast ready for the next couple of days!

I have done this in my large crock-pot (4 qt)  but I never finish the entire batch, so I tried it in my small crock-pot (this crock-pot is also referred to as the “dip crock-pot” 1.5 qt)


Here is what I put in the crock-pot:

1 1/2 cups steel cut oats

1 1/2 cups water

1 container (6-oz) baby food (sweet potato/applesauce blend)

Put in the crock-pot for 1 1/2 to 2 hours (I like mine a bit chewier, so you can leave in longer if you like them softer)


Everyday I add different topping so I do not get bored with the same ole oats.  Here are some topping to try!


1-2 tsps chunky peanut butter

1/4 tsp apple pie spice seasoning

1/2 apple, chopped (or any fruit, strawberries, blueberries, banana, etc.)

1 tbsp ground flaxseed


This power breakfast really fills me up AND it takes me at least 20 minutes to eat – a great time to relax and start off the morning, ahh!  So if you are in a hurry take it to go and eat it at work if you don’t have time.  Just heat up and eat!


Steel cut oats are a great source of fiber, plus if you add some other toppings to pump up the nutritional value, a winning breakfast in hand!
