Hey! It’s cold today! Have you heard?

Yeah, it hasn’t even gotten up into double digits yet. So, I’m pretty happy I put some steel cut oats in the slow cooker last night before bed because waking up to a nice hot bowl of oatmeal was pretty great.

I’m also pleased I have this really adorable hot water bottle to snuggle with all day to keep warm.

It’s only going to get colder, so if you’d like your own warm bowl of oatmeal tomorrow morning, here’s what to do:

1 cup milk (we use almond milk)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/4 tsp salt

Combine in your slow cooker (we have a little one, if you have a bigger one, double the recipe and enjoy more than once…) and cook overnight!

We added apples and cinnamon, go crazy with your own add-ins… Tomorrow I’m going with bananas and raisins…

  1. I don’t know what steel cut oats are but I’m sure I can figure it out. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll have to try this one day for the kids. Oh and love the owl hat on Miss Margot! ❤
