Ingredients

  • 2 cups of GF old fashioned old oats/steel cut oats (170g)
  • 1 large apple chopped (peeled if you wish)
  • ¼ cup of raisins (35g)
  • 5 cups of almond milk or other plant based milk(32oz/900ml)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (2g)
  • teaspoon pink salt (0.75g)
  • sweetener to taste vegan condensed milk, see post for recipe/agave/maple/nectar

Instructions

  • Fit the crockpot with the liner or coat with oil
  • Add the chopped apples, raisins, oats, cinnamon, sweetener and pink salt 
  • Then finally pour the almond milk and stir everything together and cover with lid
  • Switch the crockpot on and select 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low overnight
  • Serve the next day, you may need to pour a splash of a milk prior to serving if the oatmeal is too thick.
  • Sprinkle with fruit/nuts and sweetener if you wish

Notes

  • I personally prefer to use a liner for this particular recipe to eliminate any clean up. This is an optional but recommended step, and any sticky is dependent on the model of your crockpot. Alternatively,  use oil if you don't own or want to use liners.
  • Although oats don’t contain gluten, for those of you who are extremely sensitive to gluten, make sure the labels states that the oats are free from gluten.
  • You don’t have to make the oats overnight, you can make them anytime of the time and have the porridge ready to consume.
  • The skin from the apples tends to pulls away so if you don't care for the extra fibre via the skin make sure to peel the apples first.
  • Any leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator and eaten within 2-3 days
  • You can drizzle with syrup or add some cranberries, coconut flakes, pineapple, cherry, nuts or seeds once the oatmeal is finished.
  • To keep the recipe low in calories use water or fat free/low fat milk
  • This recipe works for a 7 quart capacity unit
  • It's normal for skin to form inside of the crockpot, just stir everything together once the oatmeal is cooked
  • Double the recipe if you are feeding a large crowd and only if your crockpot can accommodate it
