Whip out your slow cooker and let’s get cooking! This Maple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal is made with 6 simple ingredients for a wholesome, filling breakfast.
I always used to joke around that, one day, oatmeal was going to make me millions. It’s pretty much the only thing I used to post the first 12 months FFF existed. Why? Because I was obsessed with it and determined to make everyone else fall madly in love with it, too. To this day, I eat oatmeal every single day for breakfast, most likely with a banana and nut butter. It’s like dessert for breakfast and helps me poop. By the way, in real life, I talk about poop, but I rarely bring it up on the blog. POOOOOP.
While oatmeal hasn’t made me millions (YET :P), my obsession with oatmeal is what lead me to start this blog. I can’t believe FFF is going to be 5 on November 5! That’s half a decade. That’s kindergarten. That’s 5 fingers. Crazy how time flies when you’re having fun. Cliche? The truth.
So, I actually made this oatmeal for Davida when I was in Toronto back in August for her b-day. She inspired me to make this recipe because I was greeted with her amazing Peaches and Cream Steel Cut Oatmeal. Oh mah gah. I could eat that stuff every day. Anyways, her P&CSCO (<— what if I only spoke in acronyms?) was prepared in the slow cooker, which I think is genius.
This is like fall in a bowl. Maple + cinnamon = a whole lotta love.
Get crazy with your toppings. I suggest either the classic peanut butter + banana OR the crazy bacon bits and pepitas. Both solid choices.
