Hot Chocolate Steel Cut Oats in the Crock Pot.

Yep, that’s what I said.  Hot chocolate steel cut oats!  My girls were swooning to say the least.  It’s a fun departure from the typical steel cut oats I make them.  The flavor is reminiscent of a mug of hot chocolate.  Warm the soul and the stomach.

 

 

 

Ingredients:
1 cup of steel cut oats
4 cups of water
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder (try to use the best quality that you can find – I used Wilbur’s)
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of honey or agave
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
Chocolate chips, dried tart cherries, nuts, chia seeds (optional toppings)

Directions:

Spray the inside of the crock pot with non stick spray.  Then add the steel cut oats and the remaining ingredients through sugar.  Give it all a good stir.  Set it on low and cover.  I made this at 8:30 p at night.  When you awaken, remove the lid from the crock pot and give it a good stir (leave the cover off).  Adjust the sweetness at this point by adding extra honey or sugar if needed.  Serve.

  1. I made this last night and eating them right now! They are so good (without additions/toppings even)! I did not change anything except to use quick cook steel cut oats, so they were actually done last night in about 4 hours. Thank you for the recipe!
