Slow cooker season in full swing right now !!
It’s getting chilly in NYC, so it was a perfect morning for Peanut Butter Banana Oats in my slow cooker 😍
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup steel cut oats
3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl that fits inside the bowl of your slow cooker. (I used a round ceramic dish).
Place the bowl in your slow cooker, and fill your slow cooker with 1 cup of water to surround the bowl.
Cook on LOW 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
Carefully remove the bowl, stir, and enjoy!
*Note: I have tried this recipe with the oats directly in the slow cooker, but they tend to burn and stick around the edges. Not enough to ruin the oats, but using the bowl is much less messy!
