Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oatmeal! A holiday favorite.

INGREDIENTS:

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

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Spray the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. 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.

Notes: You can make this in advance, store in airtight containers, and reheat in the microwave as needed. If it seems a bit dry when you go to reheat it, just add some additional milk or water and you’ll be all set!
