Warm blueberries and banana slices, soft oats and almonds, along with just a bit of brown sugar makes for an excellent and easy breakfast. Once a week, the kids and I run out to pick up our milk first thing in the morning.
Slow cooked oatmeals are the perfect breakfast for those days. I can stir it all together and turn on the crockpot while we are getting ready to leave the house. When we return, the house smells fabulous and the oatmeal is waiting for us.

- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 large bananas sliced
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries fresh berries would be even better
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 cups of milk
- Place all of the ingredients into the crockpot. Stir to combine and cover with the lid. Cook on high for 1 1/2 hours. Stirring occasionally, or not at all. Serve when everything is warm and softened to your liking.The longer this cooks, the thicker it will become. I like it best when the oats are softened, but still separate and not a cooked oatmeal texture. Enjoy!
- * I use a small 2 quart crockpot for this meal, but a larger one will work fine. Simply watch your cooking times and adjust as necessary.
