There is nothing that says “good morning” quite like a hot bowl of delicious oatmeal. I know..I know coffee really comes first. But when it comes to eating a nutritious breakfast, most would agree that oatmeal is at the top of the list of choices.
Serve Oatmeal To Support Your Health
- Oats make an easy, balanced breakfast. One cup contains about 150 calories, 6 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. They are also loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidant, making oats one of the most nutrient-dense foods you could eat.
- Oatmeal is incredibly filling and may help with weight loss.. Oats contain beta-glucan, which can delay how long it takes your stomach to empty of food, increasing the time you feel full.
- Naturally Gluten-Free. Choose oat products that are certified as gluten-free. You can also check with manufacturer to make sure that their product is not made using the same equipment as other grains that contain gluten.
Tips for making the best Slow Cooker Blueberry Almond Oatmeal recipe:
- Use only good quality steel cut oats (not rolled oats). Choose organic if possible.
- This dish was tested using fresh blueberries. If using frozen blueberries, thaw before adding them to the oatmeal.
- The oatmeal can be made in your Instant Pot using the Slow Cooker function. Add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot. Cover and cook using the Slow Cooker function, setting to Normal for 2 – 3 hours. Turn the steam release handle to “Venting” while cooking.
- I have made this oatmeal with both 2% milk and coconut milk. Both are equally delicious.
- Start checking the slow cooker set to high at 1-1/2 hours time.

- Add all ingredients except the blueberries to the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
- Cover and set to high for 2 – 3 hours or low for 4 – 6 hours. 15 minutes before the cooking time is up, add the blueberries to the oatmeal and stir. Replace the cover and continue cooking until blueberries are softened.
- Allow oatmeal to cool slightly, (it will thicken as it cools). Spoon into bowls, garnish with more blueberries, honey and almonds and serve warm.
- Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
