Ingredients

    **This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker, 1 1/2 to 2 quarts

    1/2 cup (40g) steel-cut oats
    2 cups (500ml) unsweetened coconut milk
    1 small apple, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon maple extract
    Sweetener of choice, to taste (I used 1 Nu Stevia, but if you don’t have maple extract use maple syrup or brown sugar to get that “blondie” flavor)
    Handful of chopped pecans, for topping

Directions

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean-up later. Add all the ingredients except the sweetener and nuts. Cook on low overnight (7 to 9 hours).

In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well and add sweetener. It may seem watery at the top, but if stirred, it should be a more uniform consistency. Top with chopped pecans.

Serving Size: Makes 2-3 servings

  • Very Good

    At first I was not a huge fan, I thought it good but I personally like my oatmeal undercooked so it has a lot of texture and nuttiness to it. But as I continued to eat it, I realized the more I liked it. Gives me a new variety for cooking. Very convenient to wake up to breakfast already for me. - 11/3/14

    I have been putting cracked oats in things for decades. apples are free this month so apple is this months main ingredient. Oats are so good for lowering cholesterol also! - 10/29/14

    I woke up this morning to the smell of coconut in my apartment. So appealing. I added some apple pie spices (cinnamon, cardamon, allspice, nutmeg) to it when I woke up, and let those heat into it. Can't wait to have it again tomorrow morning. Also, I used two apples as my apples are *really* small. - 12/16/15

    I've tried steel-cut oats and don't like the texture. I can make maple oatmeal in the microwave in 5 minutes with Old Fashioned (rolled) oats instead. I use sugar-free pancake syrup. - 12/11/15

    I absolutely love making my own oatmeal. I often make an oatmeal dish like his only I prefer almonds. The maple syrup sure does sound like an interesting turn. - 8/20/15
