We have a couple different make-ahead breakfast options that really work well for our family Our favorite go-to easy recipes include a lot of freezer meal options – like muffins, breakfast burritos, smoothies and waffles or pancakes. But I’ve never tried an overnight oatmeal until this week.
Overnight Crock Pot Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal
- ¼ cups Maple Syrup
- 2 cups Steel Cut Oats
- ⅓ cups Brown Sugar
- ½ teaspoons Salt
- 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup or so of raisins
- 6 cups Water
Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Add all ingredients and stir. Cook on low for 7-8 hours and stir before eating.
Most of the kids really enjoyed this recipe. Even my husband ate a small bowl (he normally doesn’t eat any breakfast). We topped ours with more syrup and raisins. The kids love raisins! The recipe says it will make six servings – I have to say 6 BIG servings. This made a lot of oatmeal! Also I think you need to really know your crock pot I tend to think mine cooks on the faster side. I made mine up at 9 the night before. I was up in the middle of the night with different kids so I did stir it a couple times we well, but it competently ready at 4:30. Which is right around 7-8 hours. So I guess I really should have started it later? I’ll have to figure out some timing when I make it again. I think next time I’l want to try an apple flavored kind.
Do you have a favorite make-ahead breakfast?
