Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats with Blueberries and Peaches

Recipe adapted from Danica's Daily

  • 3 cups steel cut oats (do not use regular oatmeal because it does not hold up well for slow cooking)
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 pound frozen peaches (unsweeetened)
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon real vanilla
  • 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt


  1. Spray slow cooker with cooking spray or use a crockpot liner. If you could see the pot I have to scrub right now, you'd completely understand the wisdom in this instruction. I forgot to spray the crockpot last night. I am very sorry about that.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in the crockpot. The cinnamon and fruit will probably rise to the top, don't worry about it. They will cook up just fine.
  3. Cook overnight on low for 8 hours. 
  4. Serve with sweetener of choice, a little butter, and some milk.  My personal favorites for sweetening are: brown sugar, coconut sugar, agave nectar, or maple syrup or maple sugar.
