Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats for Baby

Steel Cut Oats are totally in fashion. There really aren’t all that different nutritionally from Rolled Oat but are coarse and a bit more chewier and can be a great baby food.

After you’ve passed the introductory stages for feeding your baby its time to get creative and let your baby experience all of the amazing foods out there. You also don’t want to spend every waking minute cooking separate meals for your baby . . . trust me. That’s where this great recipe for Steel Cut Oats in the Slow Cooker comes in.

Not only is it easy to make, just put all your ingredients together in the Slow Cooker but the next morning you are awakened to an amazing smell and a hot breakfast. You can transfer the cooked oats into Tupperware and serve them for the next 5 days just reheat them in the microwave.

Not only is this a hearty nutritious breakfast but its a great snack for baby. Little hands can easily grab handfuls of cooked oats and shove them into their mouth. There is lots of flavour and the oats fill them up. Its also a great introduction to breakfast and hopefully will help when trying to avoid Capt’n Crunch and Lucky Charms in the future.

Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats

2 apples, peeled, cored, cut into pieces (I used Cortland)
1 1/2 cups Milk
1 1/2 cups Water
1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. butter, cut into pieces
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Use 1 tbsp. of butter and coat the inside of the Slow Cooker so the oats don’t stick to the inside. Peel, core and cut apples into small pieces. Add in all other ingredients and stir. Set Slow Cooker to low and cook overnight for 7 hours.
How simple is that? Trust me these taste fantastic and its such a simple recipe that you can make it your own. Add shredded coconut, raisins, dried apricots, flax, whatever you’ve got and make a delicious breakfast.
All you need to do is wakeup and enjoy!
