Erin SheehanIf you are like me, you have been trying to avoid processed foods and rely more on healthy whole foods. In addition to avoiding processed food, we are also steering clear of animal products. This all makes breakfast pretty tough. No store-bought cereal, no eggs, no store-bought bread, no sausages … we run out of options pretty quickly it seems.

I discovered steel cut oats a while back and have found that they are delicious when cooked in the crock pot. You can either make them overnight or make a batch ahead and then keep it in the refrigerator to heat up each morning.

I first posted a steel cut oat crock pot recipe a couple of years back. Since then I have refined the recipe and made a few changes that I think make the finished product tastier and healthier. I hope you will give this gluten-free, vegan, high-protein, whole-food breakfast recipe a try!
