Indyanna (my two year old) started preschool recently and they do a group snack. Her school is really great and they let us send a Paleo version of whatever they are serving. Every few weeks, oatmeal is on the menu. We tried gluten-free steel cut oatmeal the first week and she really wasn’t that into it. I created this Paleo Slow Cooker N’Oatmeal for her – loaded with butternut squash and some apples.
Indyanna has been loving this! It’s been a nice change from our usual eggs too. Since this recipe is made in a slow cooker, you can always make this overnight and have delicious, warm, Paleo N’Oatmeal ready for you in the morning.
This recipe works best if you soak the nuts. So, make sure to plan accordingly.
Paleo Slow Cooker Butternut Squash N’Oatmeal
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
2 apples, peeled and cubed
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I like this brand)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (I like this brand)
1 tablespoon coconut sugar – if you prefer your oatmeal sweeter, you can do 2 tablespoons (I like this brand)
1 cup coconut milk (Make your own or find BPA-Free coconut milk here)
- Cover the almonds and walnuts with filtered water. Add a dash of sea salt. Soak for 12 hours.
- Rinse the nuts with some more filtered water. Place in a food processor and blend until you have a meal or flour consistency.
- Place the butternut squash, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground nuts, coconut sugar and coconut milk into the slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
- Use a potato masher to mash the N’Oatmeal into your preferred consistency.
- Top with you favorite toppings and serve.
