Blueberry Pie Breakfast



Ingredients:

1 cup of steel cut oats*
3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (Europes Best works great)
1 cup of blueberry juice (I use Oasis)
3 cups water

Directions:

For Best Results:  Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook for 2-4 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low until it reaches the consistency that you like.  Be sure to stir every hour or so.

* You can also cook longer without stirring as often, but you have to add more water liquid and it does come out a bit mushier.  Add an extra cup of liquid for 7-8 hours in the slow cooker.Delicious when topped with a drizzle of organic maple syrup, honey, or a sprinkle of brown sugar.

This recipe makes 6 - 1 cup servings. 

Nutritional Information (before additional toppings):

* It must be steel cut oats, regular oats get very soggy when cooked this way.   You can find steel cut oats in your local grocery store (sometimes they are called "irish oats" or "pinhead oats").

I usually make the entire recipe and then we eat the leftovers for a few days, as cooking only half of the recipe doesn't have the same consistency.

  1. Do you think this could also be done with Cream of Wheat? My husband isn't a big fan of oatmeal, but he loves his cream of wheat. What do you think?

    1. Hi Linda! I'm not sure if cream of wheat would hold up in the slow cooker the way that steel cut oats do. There is only one way to find out! If you end up doing this, be sure to let me know how it turns out. :)

  3. I'm going to try this (and the apple pie breakfast)! I hope I can find steel cut oats. Do you eat it cold or do you heat it up?

  4. I just put this in the crockpot, with some added frozen raspberries! Can't wait to see how it turns out.
