These slow cooker gingerbread oats are vegan and gluten free.  You can make them with either water or milk.  I chose water for mine.  This is very budget friendly and makes a lot.  Make it up on a Sunday and have breakfast for the entire workweek. My husband takes it to work every morning.

  1. What is the difference between blackstrap molasses and molasses that does not say blackstrap on the bottle? I have no experience cooking with either, and the one grocery store in my small town doesn’t have molasses that says blackstrap. Wondering if it’s worth the trip to the “city.” Thanks.

    1. The only difference is that blackstrap molasses contains a good amount of iron. 🙂 Regular molasses will work too.

  2. Could I make this without the maple syrup and molasses and sweeten to taste with stevia when eating? My husband is diabetic and even maple syrup or molasses raises his blood sugar.

  3. Can I use regular oats instead of steel cut? I’m not a big fan of steel cut, but I don’t know what the change would do to the texture. I eat oatmeal every morning with cinnamon, walnuts, and bananas. This sounds BETTER!
