Oatmeal is one of the few healthy foods that I can get my three year-old to eat for breakfast, which means we end up eating a lot of oatmeal. I like to find new flavors and ways to make it so we don’t get tired of it. Our regular rotation includes individual baked oatmeals and overnight steel cut oats. This is special occasion oatmeal (ok, that sounds like an oxymoron, but go with me on this). Since you make it in the crockpot, it’s ready to serve in the morning, which is great for times when holidays (like Valentine’s Day) or other special occasions fall on weekdays. There’s no sugar in the oatmeal because I put the sugar on after the oatmeal is done. The brown sugar melts to form a caramel-y sauce, and I’ve found that we don’t use as much sugar if we add it at the end.

    I’m a full time student, wife (to a husband that travels), and a mom…so breakfast has been tough for me since the semester started 3 weeks ago. This is perfect! No more breakfast burritos in the student center! I am making this tomorrow night in my new Crock Pot. Thanks for sharing…I’m so glad to have discovered your lovely blog!

      So, you have less than no time! I hope you like it!! If you like oatmeal and want a make-ahead option, you might also like individual baked oatmeals. They reheat well, and the recipe is a blank canvas sorta recipe, so you can totally customize it. Anyway, I am so happy that you took the time to comment!! I hope you enjoy the oatmeal!!! =)

    This looks divine! My 19 month old boys love oatmeal…and chocolate, and mama loves her crockpot. (I noticed you posted oatmeal cups/muffins, those are a favorite around here!) We are going to have to try this recipe soon. Note to self- add steel cut oatmeal to list.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I have wanted to make overnight oatmeal for a while and even got steel cut oats. The problem is my family wouldn’t want to eat it. I guess I need some overnight guests! Thanks for linking up at my Pin Me Linky Party.
