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 Strawberry Layer Cake Oatmeal

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.

Crock Pot Breakfast
