Creamy, low-sugar, dairy-free, & easy to make steel cut oats!
Some people have a hard time digesting oats. If this is you I have a trick that could help you- soaking them!
Soaking your oats overnight BEFORE cooking them helps break down the starches & phytic acid so your body has less work to do when it comes time to eat them. This is often overlooked but definitely makes a huge difference for me. It also makes them super fluffy, soft, & more full, so you get a bit more volume out of them, filling you up for longer.
How to soak your oats:
- Add your oats to a bowl & cover them with water.
- Let them sit, preferably overnight.
- In the morning, drain the water & rinse the oats well using a fine mesh sieve.
- Then the oats are ready to be added to the slow cooker with new, fresh water!
I also love adding a serving of collagen to my prepared oats but simply omit this for a vegan option. I prefer to add my sweetener & additional add-in’s after the oats have been prepared. I kept this recipe pretty basic so you can spice it up however you prefer. It is delicious with maple syrup, coconut butter, cinnamon, almond butter, or I topped it with my easy flax jam recipe which I shared on my Instagram & you can find here! You could make it with a mix of strawberries & rhubarb as well!
I hope you guys love this recipe as much as I do! I am obsessed with rhubarb this time of year so let me know if there are any other rhubarb recipes you want me to experiment with! Make sure to tag me on Instagram if you make any of my recipes so I can share your re-creations on my stories!
