Stuck for breakfast ideas? Us too. However this seems to be a go-to in the Foster household for those early morning meals on cold winter days. We call it Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Oatmeal. Yup, use a slow cooker and that’s it really. Slow cooker breakfast ideas are the best.
- 1 medium-large sweet potato grated (skin peeled and grated)
- 2 cups of steel cut oats
- 1/4 cup hemp protein powder
- 1 tbsp organic cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp organic all spice
- 1 tsp organic clove
- 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
- 5 cups filtered water
- 3 cups organic unsweetened almond milk
Put all the ingredients into a slow cooker. Stir the ingredients and make sure they are all incorporated and blending together. Cook on low for 6 hrs.
It may appear watery when its cooked, but once you stir everything it will have a thicker consistency.
Top with chopped walnuts.
This slow cooker breakfast idea can be switched up with squash, pumpkin, carrot, apple, etc…
