Slow Cooker Banana Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Banana Oatmeal

2 medium ripe bananas, sliced
3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
1 cup steel cut oats
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or coconut extract (coconut gives it a great tropical flavor)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Optional garnishes: additional sliced bananas, chopped toasted macadamia nuts or walnuts, toasted coconut, additional brown sugar, milk

Coat inside of 3-1/2 quart or larger slow cooker with cooking spray or line with a slow cooker liner. Add all ingredients except optional toppings to slow cooker. Stir, cover, and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours. If too thick add a bit more milk or water and stir well. Spoon warm oatmeal into bowls. Add optional toppings, if desired. Serves 4.

Store leftovers in refrigerator. To reheat single servings: Put 1-cup cooked oatmeal in microwave proof bowl. Add 1/3 cup milk or water. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Continue cooking for another minute, or until hot. Recipe can be doubled in 6-quart or larger slow cooker. This is great to cook overnight while you’re sleeping. Just turn your slow cooker on before bed and wake up to breakfast all done! Not to mention, the house will smell amazing!
