We love our Overnight Oats, but sometimes it's nice to have warm, no-fuss, flavour-immersed, slow-cooked steel-cut oatmeal during cold, winter mornings. But who stays up until midnight to turn on their slow cooker so that they'll have breakfast ready by morning? Or the patience to keep an eye on steel-cut oats on the stove top? Here's my solution: put all the ingredients in your crock pot the night before, but don't turn it on.

Put the lid on and leave it overnight.

The next morning, before anything else, turn your slow cooker on low.

Your Warm Overnight Oats will be ready in 1 to 1.5 hours.

Warm Overnight Oats (Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Refined-sugar free)

1 1/4 cup organic, gluten-free steel-cut oats (toasted-optional)
3 cups organic almond milk
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp organic coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

Things needed: slow cooker.

Combine steel cut oats, almond milk, water, coconut sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in your slow cooker. Give it a stir. Cover with lid but do not turn on until the next morning (low setting). Ready in about 1 1/2 hours. Makes about 4 servings. Top with more almond milk and whatever else you desire ie. bananas, pecans, almonds, granola, coconut, maple syrup, coconut sugar, pumpkin seeds, cacao powder, goji berries, chia seeds, poppy seeds, dried fruit, fresh berries, nut butters, homemade jam,..
