Coconut Slow Cooker Oatmeal

July 6th, 2012

In my quest to try different oatmeal recipes for the slow cooker, I was inspired to make a tropical themed flavor.

Using this base recipe, I modified it by substituting coconut milk for the soy and coconut extract instead of vanilla.

Instead of berry toppings, I added shredded coconut, macadamia nuts and sliced banana.

Oatmeal always screams fall to me – like Quaker’s Instant oatmeal flavors apple cinnamon and maple brown sugar.  But this flavor combination gives a summery feel to that autumn dish!
