Makes 4-6 servings
4 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats (find in the bulk section of your grocery store)
1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
1. Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Dump all the ingredients into your slow cooker. The bigger the slow cooker the quicker it will cook.
3. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or on LOW for 4-6 hours.
4. Top with bananas, milk and sugar, if desired.
What do you get when you mix red and blue together? In this case, you get a nice purple oatmeal. I made this on Saturday morning for myself and I enjoyed it so much. The raspberries added tartness and the blueberries added sweetness. I topped mine with milk, bananas, and a little sugar. This breakfast is so satisfying and will stick with you. Not to mention pretty darn healthy. I want this for dinner tonight. 4 stars.
This looks very interesting. I’ll have to try it once I get all the ingredients together. Will this work in my new IPot slow cooker function?
I believe that it would. I haven’t used the slow cooker function on mine much yet. But use the middle or highest setting. The lowest setting on the slow cooker function is more like ‘warm’ than anything.

I make the same with apple and walnuts. I make a lot and freeze it! 2-3 min in the microwave and add a little milk! Can't wait to try this one!
I've been making something like this for years … try adding some shredded apple, a handful of raisins and vanilla yogurt. My kids used to eat this for breakfast. Blackberries and strawberries work well too. You dont need to make it in the crockpot just use one minute quick cook oats with hot water and as soon as the oatmeal thickens add the other stuff .. it's very simple 🙂
