This slow cooker oatmeal is a healthy breakfast meal prep recipe that is made with coconut milk, Bai5 Brasilia Blueberry, and frozen blueberries for a healthy, creamy and vegan-friendly weekday breakfast that is so easy to make!
Am I late to the let-the-slow-cooker-do-the-work-for-you oatmeal breakfast jams that you’ve probably all been dancing to each morning for the last eleventy billion years?
I AM, aren’t I? UGH. SOML.
BUTBUTBUT you know what they say right? I’m just FASHIONABLY late. And not “fashionably” in the sense of those weird items of “clothing” that you see on the runway, that most humans would never wear EVER. More so in the sense of creamy coconut swirled with frosty, sweet blueberries, soft, wholesome flakes of steel-cut oatmeal goodness and fruity-fresh BAI5 BRASILIA BLUEBERRY.
AKA: the bevvie that I have been consuming left, right, center, up, down and sideways.
I might be slightly exaggerating…because you can’t actually consume any beverage upside down. Don’t try it.
Not that I know from experience. Just hypothetically speaking here.
You remember the stevia-sweetened, 5 calorie refreshing deliciousness that is Bai5 from the Banana Vanilla Orange Smoothies right? Of course you do. One doesn’t forget 5 calories that somehow tastes so MAGICALLY DELICIOUS very quickly.
As much as I love straight-up giving the lid the ol’ twist-er-oo and just guzzling my Bai5 down the hatch, it’s also equally delicious IN food. Like oatmeal. Partly because I will take any excuse to make something oatmeal-licious ALWAYS. And partly because my taste buds keep craving the juicy bursts of blueberries to explode all over the tip of my tongue overandoverandoveragain.
PLUSSS there’s the whole new level of healthy breakfast awesome that I discovered when I was introduced to these slow cooker steel cut oats from Dishing Delish.
You guys. You know I’ve made energy quinoa breakfast bars in the slow cooker and a million other quinoa-based recipes in the slow cooker, BUT I made oatmeal in my slow cooker for the FIRST TIME EVER. Of course, if you’re more of an Instant pot person, you could make instant pot steel cut oats!
Stop judging me. I already openly admitted to being late to the party. OWNING IT.[Tweet “Let the slow cooker do the work with this #Vegan Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal for breakfast! @drinkbai”]
Fer cereal (HAHA funny breakfast pun) though. I’ve always been a one-serving-of-oatmeal-at-a-time kind of gal. (unless it’s blueberry baked oatmeal.) An oatmeal elitist, if you will. I didn’t want to make a double batch and risk having it go COLD and MUSHY and GUMMY on me. My texture-freak-oatmeal-munchin’-mouth would definitely not be interested in starting the day with that kind of ICK.
Except, low and behold, my thoughts of such disgusting-ness were UNTRUE. Because this BIG BATCH of oatmeal? ALL UP in the YUM FO’ DAYS. Just add a little bit more coconut milk each morning to bring it back to LIFE, and you’re ready to shake your breakfast groove thang.
Whatever that means.
Plus, all you have to do is throw a few ingredients in the slow cooker, stir ‘er up and SLEEP ON IT. Seriously. Like, 2 steps = wake up to your kitchen smelling like BLUEBERRY PIE, AND you get to face plant into a bowl of creamy, dreamy COMFORT.
P.s Bai5 has is made from the super cool coffeefruit, which is the outer layer of the coffee bean that you chug back 6 cups of every morning <— I still can’t get over the existence of such a fruit. But, it is real and it’s loaded with FEEL-GOOD antioxidants AND natural caffeine.
It’s like breakfast and your morning 6 cups of joe in ONE perfectly fruity, juicy bowl.
Blueberry Oatmeal for DAYS at one TIME guys.
You should try it.
