Steel Cut Oats

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is fantastic. What could be easier than to put a few ingredients in a slow-cooker, turn it on low and walk away. In a few hours, breakfast is served. Slow cooker oatmeal is made with steel-cut oats. Steel-cut oats should be used in all recipes for slow cooker oatmeal because steel cut oats can withstand the long hours in the slow cooker. Read on to see why we no longer cook slow cooker oats ‘overnight.’

Recipe Note:

Since the writing of this post we have changed the time on all “overnight” slow cooker oatmeal recipes. We found that “overnight” slow cooking is way too long (anything longer than 5 hours) thus resulting in very burnt, inedible oatmeal. We recommend 4 to 5 hours on high for oatmeal made in the slow cooker. This is just our recommendation, an observation really. All crock-pots and slow cookers heat differently.

Recommendation

The best recommendation that we can give is to try a recipe, like this one, for slow cooker oatmeal. Let it cook on high for 4 hours and go from there. You may have a slow cooker that cooks ‘slow’ in which case, you can cook your overnight oatmeal, ‘overnight.’ Another thing, oatmeal can be frozen. If you do decide to experiment and make a sample batch of oatmeal so to speak, freeze it! Do a little more experimenting and freeze a batch of oatmeal too.
