Original Recipe and Picture from:

Christmas morning is crazy busy, and we all tend to skip breakfast in anticipation for the big afternoon feast. Instead of skipping breakfast, pop this in the crock-pot before Santa stops by and you’ll have a healthy quick meal to kick off the festivities.


2 cups uncooked steal cut oats

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. allspice

8 cups water

1/4 cup molasses (can sub with maple syrup)

Optional toppings: nuts, seeds, dried cranberries, Greek yogurt.


  1. Spray the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients in slow cookers and stir well. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
