Slow Cooker Banana Pudding Oatmeal – Another Southern Dessert for Breakfast

Banana Pudding is a Southern favorite with a bottom layer of vanilla wafers, topped with very ripe sliced bananas and topped with vanilla pudding. This oatmeal is much simpler but has the main flavors of banana combined with an intense vanilla flavor.


Slow Cooker Vanilla Fig Oatmeal Topped with Baklava Filling

You can leave off the topping altogether or just use a teaspoon or two of your favorite nut. Depending on how sweet your figs are you may need to add a little sweetener if you make it that way.


Slow Cooker Carrot Cardamom Oatmeal

This oatmeal is inspired by an Indian dessert Carrot Halwa. Carrot Halwa is a thick paste of carrot, sugar and cardamom that’s sometimes topped with saffron and pistachios.


Slow Cooker Strawberry Layer Cake Oatmeal

This oatmeal has the sweet and slightly sour bite of strawberries with the creamy after taste of vanilla and the richness of So Delicious Coconut milk.


Slow Cooker Lemon Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

This oatmeal reminds me of my favorite muffin. You get blueberries in every bite with a bright burst of lemon. There’s something about just smelling lemon that seems to make the ickiest day seem to have possibilities.


Slow Cooker Almond Joy Oatmeal

This slow cooker oatmeal is soy-free, gluten-free, and full of chocolaty goodness. It uses cocoa, So Delicious Coconut Milk, unsweetened coconut, and slivered almonds to mimic the taste of an Almond Joy.


Veggie Confetti Muffins

These muffins are moist and delicious! The flax and walnuts provide omega-3s, while folate, beta-carotene, vitamin A and fiber are provided by the vegetables. Submitted by Katherine Lawrence (, cooking instructor for The Cancer Project.

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon…


Hot Oatmeal and Rice

1 C rolled “old-fashioned” oats
1 C cooked (leftovers!) rice, brown or white…


Breakfast Potatoes (Hash Browns)

I’m not sure this qualifies as hash browned potatoes, but I do diced potatoes in the oven and we eat them like hash browns…


Crock Pot Breakfast

This recipe may look complicated but it really isn’t. If you make it often, it can be simplified by chopping several batches of fruit at a time and packaging them in separate packages.


Cream of Wheat Berries with Cranberry and Cardamom

Combine these great grains the night before so breakfast is ready when you are the next morning. This fragrant, hot cereal is good served with a little maple syrup or brown sugar and a splash of vanilla soy milk. Cinnamon or allspice may be used instead of cardamom.

    • One Bowl Mix and Bake “Pumpkin” Millet Pudding
      One of the things I’m most thankful for each Fall is that it’s time to eat orange food. And one of my favorite orange foods since I was a little kid has always been winter squash. If I’m going to eat it for dinner, either stuffed or right out of the skin, two of my […]
