Slow Cooker Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

  • Cooking Time:

    6–8 hours
  • Servings:



1 1/4 c. Steel Cut Oats (Gluten-Free, if desired)
2 1/2 c. Vanil­la Almond Milk (or coconut milk)
1 tsp. Vanil­la Extract
¼ tsp. Coarse Salt
1/3 c. Creamy Peanut or Almond But­ter
2 Extra Ripe Bananas, sliced (the brown­er, the bet­ter!)
1 T. Hon­ey
1 T. Coconut Palm Sug­ar (or brown sug­ar)

Elvis would be croon­ing if he woke up to this hearty and deli­cious Slow Cook­er Gluten-Free Peanut But­ter Banana Oat­meal!  (You can decide if you want to add some bacon!)

  1. Place oats, almond milk, vanil­la, salt and peanut but­ter or nut but­ter in a 3-quart slow cook­er and mix well.
  2. Arrange banana slices over top the ingre­di­ents in the crock.
  3. Driz­zle hon­ey and sprin­kle sug­ar on top.
  4. Cov­er and Cook on HIGH for 1 hour, then let heat on WARM overnight, up to 8 hours. (Note: orig­i­nal­ly, I had been cook­ing this on LOW for 8 hours but found that depend­ing on what slow cook­er I used, this was far too long.  I have had suc­cess with this method (1 hr high, overnight on warm) for overnight cook­ing in sev­er­al slow cook­ers. If you don’t have overnight, cook the oat­meal for up to 4 hours on LOW.
  5. Serve with shaved coconut or with a sprin­kling of choco­late chips, if desired.

Hap­py Crock­ing!

How many serv­ings is this recipe?


Oops! I am new to the site and didn’t real­ize the infor­ma­tion was in the upper right cor­ner! Thanks! Can’t wait to try it!


I have a large oval crock pot. I just real­ized it may be a small roast­ing pan. This may be why with­in 2 hours, this had almost over cooked on low. It says corn­ing ware electrics on it. And it has a switch that turns from off to low to high to auto. That’s it. It’s a ceram­ic inner peice and a glass lid. I know I mea­sured cor­rect­ly for all ingre­di­ents. So what gives? 8 hours and I would have wok­en up to charred oats!


Thank you for the response! The recipe did taste good and I’m sure it must be my crock. I’ll talk to San­ta about it!


I just made this overnight per your instruc­tions and woke up to burnt oats. I hope it didn’t ruin my crock pot. What a bum­mer. It smelled so good overnight.

Hi, I don’t have coconut palm sug­ar, can I sub with addi­tion­al hon­ey instead ? Thanks .


How big of a crock­pot are these recipes designed for? I have sev­er­al dif­fer­ent sized crocs. Thanks!


Can you use quick oats instead?


Am I not see­ing it but how much water does this recipe require?
