Slow Cooker Berry Oatmeal Recipe

For some reason I’ve been totally unmotivated to cook breakfast in the mornings. Maybe due to the whole no appetite thing. I don’t like cold breakfasts, so using the slow cooker or preparing breakfast (mostly) the night before is working for me right now.

Monday morning we had Overnight Blueberry French Toast. This is a decadent, delicious but still filling and healthy recipe I’ve loved from The One Armed Cook cookbook.

Basically you take a loaf of dried out French bread (I was lazy and used regular old loaf bread) and place it in a large baking pan. Make your egg/milk/vanilla extract/nutmeg mixture and pour over. Soak overnight. In the morning top with melted butter, brown sugar, 2 cups blueberries (frozen is fine) and chopped pecans. Bake. Ohhh heavenly! Good even without maple syrup.

This morning we had berry oatmeal in the slow cooker. The recipe went sort of like this:

Slow Cooker Berry Oatmeal

- Grease the slow cooker well with 1/3 cup coconut oil or melted butter.

- Throw in: 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal, 1 cup milk, 1 large egg, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup Sucanat, 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup dried berries.

- Mix well. Cook on high for an hour or so, or low for about 3 hours.

It was soooo good! Even my “I don’t like oatmeal” kid ate it!

I LOVE waking up to breakfast already made!
