Maple Coconut Multi-Grain Cereal

Maple Coconut Multi-Grain CerealThis is now officially my favorite breakfast. And if I were a normal person who made a dish more than once instead of moving on to the next challenge after I’ve conquered a recipe, I would eat this every day.

This cereal is so easy and so delicious, and it practically cooks itself. Just put the ingredients in your crock pot, turn it on, and in the morning you have breakfast ready and waiting for you.

What are Oat Groats?

Oat groats are the whole grain oats (with the hull removed) before they get flattened into rolled oats.

I like to use oat groats when I cook cereal grains in a crock pot because they hold up to the long cooking times much better than rolled oats. And the result is a delicious, hearty breakfast with a slightly chewy texture and nutty flavor that gives you the energy you need for the whole morning.

Maple Coconut Multi-Grain Cereal



  1. Pour coconut milk into slow cooker. If milk has separated, mix with a whisk.
  2. Add almond milk, soy milk, or rice milk.
  3. Gently stir oats, rice, millet, buckwheat, flax, salt, and maple syrup into milk.
  4. Cook on low for 6 to 9 hours.
  5. When cereal is done, stir in vanilla and chopped nuts. Stir cereal well to thicken.
  6. Serve hot topped with chopped nuts and a drizzle of maple syrup if desired.

1. This recipe is for a small (7-cup) slow cooker. Recipe need to be adjusted for different size slow cookers.
2. All slow cookers cook differently. If your hot cereal turns out too thin or too thick, adjust liquid amount accordingly the next time you prepare overnight hot cereal. See this post for troubleshooting crock pot cooking.
3. If you would like your slow cooker to turn on and off automatically, you can plug it into an appliance timer.

Cooking hot cereal in a crock pot (slow cooker) is so convenient and saves so much time, I wrote a post about it. Check it out.

Vegan, Soy-Free Sour Cream

When I was young, I loooooved sour cream. I liked it so much I could eat it plain straight out of the container. I ate in on my baked potatoes, fried potatoes, and tater tots. The sole purpose of burritos, enchiladas, and tacos was to be able to eat sour cream (and guacamole). I mixed extra into my stroganoff. I dipped everything from chips to apples to carrots to crackers to granola bars in it. I topped fruit salad, soup, and chili with it. I ate it on just about everything. Read more »
