This was cooked at 4 hours and had started to stick a bit, so watch your time. I'm not a huge fan of steel cut oats, but decided to use them for this recipe. The fresh blueberries really held their shape and give you a real pop of sweetness. Be sure to mash your bananas well; I didn't, thinking they would break down when cooking, but they didn't. It was a little thick, so I did thin out after I took the photo by adding some water to get the consistency we like. I've tried a number of slow cooker oatmeal recipes, and this one actually might be my favorite. Read More

This recipe has potential. I didn't care too much for the blueberries because they turned to mush from the cooking process. I think using a firmer fruit may work a bit better. I also added a handful of dried cranberries to add a bit more flavor to the dish Read More

This is such an easy yummy recipe with great natural sugar in it. The second time I made it I used 3 bananas, 2 cups of old fashioned rolled oats, 2 cups of almond milk, and cooked it for about 3.5 hours on low. So yummy!!! Read More

A WINNER! This is really good oatmeal. The beauty of this recipe is you can adjust so many of the ingredients to suit your taste. For example, instead of 2 cups fresh blueberries I substituted 2 cups mixed berries because I had a little bit of blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries. I also added more cinnamon because we love cinnamon. As another reviewer suggested, it is prone to stick, so I added 1/2 cup more almond milk and 2T butter. It still stuck a little but not much. I had leftover and it rewarms well in the microwave. Read More

I made this for my son and he scored 3 times during his lacrosse evaluations, so now we joke that it's his pre-game super fuel. It is! I have changed it only slightly - I use 1.5cups of water and 1.5 cups of almond milk. I put it on high for 4-5 hours and it's good to go. Read More

This is super easy and taste amazing! next time I'll do like another review said and change the water and milk to 1 1/2 cups. And maybe half the blueberries and one more banana like another reviewer said. And just a bit more honey and it'll be perfect!! Read More

I made some minor changes. First, I highly recommend spraying the crock of the slow cooker with non-stick spray. I used all plain almond milk instead of part water and omitted the honey since we needed to cut the sugar. Since I used quicker-cooking steel cut oats, I was able to reduce the time quite a bit. I used frozen blueberries from our farm, and they held together surprisingly well. This was great when reheated the next day. Thanks for a very good recipe! Read More

For my first recipe with steel oats I think it turned out well! I did add more banana off the bat. Next time I ll adjust the spices for some additional flavor. We served ours with blueberries and it was delicious! Read More
