Good Morning! Bet you are wishing you were waking up to this amazing oatmeal aren’t you? I really don’t blame you. It’s pretty epic. I will admit it is my first truly homemade oatmeal. Before this I was a “grab a packet and go” kind of girl. Not anymore. No sirree. That is not happening. This was such a cinch to make and it was ready when I stumbled to the breakfast table. Perfect for this mother of a newborn that is surviving on less sleep than a human really should. Then I went and combined peanut butter and banana. Delicious! You know what I loved the most? It was filling. My stomach wasn’t growling in a few hours which is usually the case!

As I’ve shared before, I’m making it a goal in 2015 to eat healthier and smarter. I don’t really believe in strict diets because they crash and burn. I can never keep them up and then I end up gaining that weight right back. Instead I’m just trying to make better decisions. Every little bit in life counts! This oatmeal includes Steel Cut Oats, flaxseed and Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend to give it a face lift and make it a smarter breakfast. You’ll soon be throwing all those packets of oatmeal out too! It felt great to know that I was starting my day out on the right foot and making a smarter decision for breakfast and that it would hold me all the way until lunchtime. I hate when my stomach starts growling at 10 am!

Part of making smarter choices in 2015 for my daily diet includes incorporating Truvia® Brown Baking Blend in my routine. You can simply sub out the brown sugar in the recipe for Truvia® by cutting that amount in half so if a recipe calls for 1 c. brown sugar you simply use 1/2 c. Truvia® Brown Sugar Baking Blend. Plus you won’t even know it has been subbed. You’ll still achieve perfect moist muffins, cakes etc. with the brown sugar-like texture and it bakes and browns like recipes with brown sugar!

Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend is a blend of Truvia® sweetner and brown sugar with 75% fewer calories per serving than brown sugar. Sounds pretty awesome right? Did you know that 1 c. of brown sugar has 830 calories and Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend only has 210 calories? I bet that got your attention!

Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to warm to before you go out sledding and making snowmen this winter too! My friends over at Truvia® have an awesome contest going on just for you! Fans can post a snowman-inspired photo via a tab on the Truvia® Facebook page or by using #SweetWarmUp on Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win a Snowman Building prize pack, a Sledding prize pack or a Cozy Up prize pack!

Pretty awesome huh? I know I would love a prize package like that!

    Oh my gosh, YES my Monday-morning needs this oatmeal! I had plain ‘ol oatmeal and raisins this morning, and now I’m REALLY wishing I’d thrown some bananas and PB into the mix! SCORE for this being crockpot! 🙂

  • Danielle


    Yes! You are so right, I really wish I had a warm bowl of this oatmeal waiting for me this morning.

  • Jen @ Baked by an Introvert


    I do wish I had a warm bowl of this right now. And since it is so easy to make, I will be throwing it in my slow cooker before bed tonight. Tomorrow morning will start off right!

  • Melissa @ My Recent Favorite books


    I love Crockpot Oatmeal! Pinned to try soon! =)

  • Melody


    What are steel cut oats, and, can I use Splenda Brown Sugar Baking blend in place of the Truvia? What is the difference?

    • Julie Evink


      It’s really just a preference of taste between the Splenda and Truvia Brown Sugar Baking Blend, so it’s up to you! Steel cut oats aren’t rolled and pressed like rolled oats so they aren’t as processed and also take longer to cook. If you use rolled oats or quick oats in this recipe it would end up like a mushy soup. I found my steel cut oats in the specialty section by gluten free products in my grocery store, but they could also be by the rolled and quick oats! Hope that helps!

      • Melody


        Thank you for clearing that up for me. Truly appreciate your answer. 🙂

  • Julianne @ Beyond Frosting


    Now isn’t this a fun recipe?!?!

  • Medha+@+Whisk+&+Shout


    I’ve been experimenting with peanut butter and banana flavors and loving them together a ton recently! Love this 🙂

  • heather+@french+press


    peanut butter and banana is my favorite way to eat oatmeal, and this looks SO good, LOVE that you did this in the crock pot

  • Nicole Young


    Have you tried refrigerating and reheating leftovers? I got this recipe from pintrest and didn’t come to the site when I wrote it down, I swear it said 1 serving, so I doubled it for me and my kids.. haha there’s a lot left now I come to the site and see you say 6 servings!! Lesson learned 🙂

    • Julie Evink


      Yes I reheat this and it’s excellent!

  • Melissa


    Do you know what a serving would equate to on the 21 day fix from beach body?

    • Julie Evink


      Hi Melissa! I’m sorry. I’m not familiar with that diet so I can’t help you out with this question!

  • Melissa


    Recommended storage? Fridge? Freezer? How many days?

    • Julie Evink


      Store it the fridge and for up to five days.

  • Janie.


    Silly question. But how soon after you make this can you Refrigerate or can you leave on the counter till you get home from work?

    Thanks.

    • Julie Evink


      Leave it on the counter as in leave it in the Crock Pot on Warm or? I’m not sure I’m following. I wouldn’t leave it sit on the counter unless it’s done cooking in the Crock Pot and turns to warm.

  • Julie


    Could you tell me the serving size and nutrition facts?!

    • Julie Evink


      I’m sorry but I am not a trained nutritionist so I do not provide nutritional facts on my recipes.
