Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal
Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal! A holiday favorite.
2 cups uncooked steel cut oats (don’t use quick-cooking or old-fashioned rolled oats because they will get too mushy)
½ teaspoon salt (or more, to taste)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon allspice
8 cups water
¼ cup molasses (can substitute with maple syrup, but it won’t have that true “gingerbread” taste)
Optional toppings: whipped cream, chopped toasted pecans, dried cranberries, raisins, Greek yogurt
- Spray the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
- Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and stir well. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
