Banana Maple Nut Steel Cut Oats

I wanted to put on a Steel Cut Oat breakfast so I started throwing things in the pot....I had a bunch of overripe bananas that had been stuck in the freezer so I built off of that. Everyone gobbled it up!!!

2 cups steel cut oats
4 cups water
3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup 100%  maple syrup(if you dont have 100%, use brown sugar and increase milk 1/2 cup)
1 1/2- 2 cups mashed bananas, about 6 medium
1/4 cup ground flax
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped coarsely
1/2 cup raisins *optional

Combine all ingredients in a lined slow cooker(seriously liners are WELL worth it, this is a pain to scrub out!), set to low and go to bed! (6-8 hours) Give it a good stir in the am and breakfast is ready.


  1. Oh my goodness. this looks absolutely delicious. I'm just bummed that I have no overripe bananas anywhere in my house. I really enjoy reading your blog. It was recently suggested to my that my developmentally delayed 3 year old stay away from gluten. looking through your recipes has helped assuage my fears of cooking gluten free. Thank you so very much

    1. Good Luck Heather! It is definitely a different way of cooking but once you get into it its a snap.
