Oatmeal is one of those things that most people think is totally boring and uninteresting, and the truth is, it can totally be, at least if it’s made with boring and uninteresting ingredients. But if you use the right flavor combo it becomes a flavor breakfast/dinner powerhouse just like this Slow Cooker Strawberry Chocolate Oatmeal that is anything, anything but boring.
Because let’s talk about how creamy and comforting it is. You have all the thick, soft, creamy perfection of the oats and milk mix, slowly cooked until it’s just perfect. Then you have all the flavor punch of cacao powder and finally you add an extra dose of flavor with a layer of strawberries.
This my friend, this Slow Cooker Strawberry Chocolate Oatmeal is begging to be cooked, and eaten and shared. Believe it or not (I know it may be hard to believe for some oatmeal haters) this recipe is one of those breakfast crowd favorites. I made it 2 times this past week, and everyone is asking for it again. So just give it a try, trust me on this one.
Another incredibly awesome thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make, and I don’t say this just for the sake of saying it. It’s just a matter of throwing everything into your slow cooker and let it cook overnight, that’s how easy it is. Please tell me I’m not the only one that finds incredibly awesome that you can wake up and find the breakfast already done and waiting for you to serve it.
And then after it’s served I top it with some roasted strawberries (made in 10 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven) and some chocolate shavings to make it even more indulgent and juicy and chocolaty, and even more perfect if that can be a thing.
