Almond Coconut Chia Seed Oatmeal | Slow Cooker Recipe



I've been enjoying this slow cooker oatmeal several times a week this winter. There are many ways that you can customize it. I top the oatmeal with almond milk, brown sugar, flaked coconut and chopped almonds. You can also add chopped banana, and on special occasions, chocolate chips! It is very filling, so creamy, and super delicious.



Almond Coconut Chia Seed Oatmeal
seves 4

1 cup oatmeal (any kind will do)
4 cups water
1 Tbs chia seeds

Optional Toppings:
almond milk
brown sugar
unsweetened flaked coconut
chopped almonds
chopped bananas
(even chocolate chips)

Before you go to bed, place the oatmeal, water and chia seeds in your slow cooker. Mix. Cook on low for 8 to 9 hours in the slow cooker overnight. In the morning, mix the creamy oatmeal together. Add desired toppings and enjoy!


I hope you enjoy today's video.

Comment of the Week
Polly writes, "It was so fun for me to hear your story. I purchased your self-published book on the kindle way back when it first came out! I remember enjoying reading it while I was at my father's house in Charleston, South Carolina. I'd retreat to the guest room and read it in bed....very relaxing; I enjoyed the book immensely. I'm so happy that things have gone so well for you in the realm of writing and publishing, and I'm also happy to see how you give credit to One bigger than yourself, too!"

Thank you, Polly. I'm so glad you have good memories from reading the book. I always remember where I read my favorite books and it's so nice to revisit those memories.

I hope you all enjoy today's oatmeal recipe. I would love to know how you like to prepare your oatmeal. Do you have any tips or recipes for us? Let me know and your comment could be chosen as comment of the week on the blog. See you on Monday!

Hi Jennifer!
I sometimes have oatmeal... but usually I’ll have pearl barley instead... I like that you actually have to slow down and chew it and... it is also very healthy.

I cook a large batch on my rice cooker and add some cinnamon sticks and orange peels.
When it is done and has been cooled, I place individual portions on small ziploc bags and freeze them.

Every night I take out my barley bag and put it on the kitchen table. When I wake up, the barley is not frozen anymore... I put it on a large cup and add fruit, cinnamon, nuts, sugar and almond milk...

Yummy!!!

Hi Jennifer, does this recipe feed your whole family, or just you? Wondering about your serving size, as I'm working on portion control,
Thank you!

Hi Claudia, Pearl barley sounds so good. I'll have to try it!

Toni, this feeds me and my three children. My husband does not like oatmeal :)

I've been regularly making this slow cooker pear oatmeal during the winter:

So yummy and delicious-looking and I thoroughly enjoyed your rainy moment and the sounds that come with it, and which was perfect weather for the Almond Coconut Chia Oatmeal you were making.  While it won't be my birthday until June, adding chocolate chips or carob chis is ideal for the upcoming Valentine's Day, or any day, really.  Thanks, Jennifer!!!

I hope you enjoyed the rain; they were saying we won't be getting what we need (although there is some in the immediate forecast).

When I got an InstantPot, I started cooking steel cut oats (and feeling virtuous about it). Beth at Budget Bytes has some good steel-cut oats recipes; I thoroughly enjoy the "gingerbread" and Indian spice, and want to try others. https://www.budgetbytes.com/tag/steel-cut-oats/

Amazing Recipe...I will surely try this one. You can use Almond Fresh Milk in this recipe.

Hi Jennifer, I've tried this twice and both times got oatmeal that was burnt around the edges and still watery in the middle. Any suggestions? Perhaps just cooked too long?
