Fast, Easy, and Super Healthy Breakfast!

Honestly, some mornings my toddler is so HANGRY he pulls on my leg whining the entire time I’m cooking breakfast and he can hardly shovel it down fast enough….I can’t blame him, he definitely got the low blood sugar and hanger from me lol! Some mornings I really don’t have any time to fix a healthy breakfast before we need to be  out the door for appointments or whatever, but I know how important it is to start the day off with something nutritious. So, when I found this Groatmeal recipe I was ecstatic!!!!!!! Cook it on low in the crock pot all night and wake up to a nutritious & delicious breakfast? YES PLEASE!!


Oat groats are the least processed, healthiest form of oatmeal. I got some on Vitacost (one of my favorite places to shop!) but you can find them at some health food stores and amazon. :)

I found this recipe for over-night groatmeal from! I made a few changes and it is now one of my favorite breakfasts! It smells like a bakery when you wake up to it in the morning!  :)




  • 2 cups oat groats
  • 2 tablespoons ground  flaxseed
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 apples chopped
  • 2 cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)*
  • 4 cups water
  • optional: 2 scoops protein powder (I use unflavored integral collagen)
  • optional sweetener: 1/4 cup honey, organic maple syrup, or a few drops stevia


Lightly grease crockpot, mix all dry ingredients well and pour into crockpot. Add apple and wet ingredients. Stir to combine, cover, and cook on low for approximately 6-7 hours. (slow cooker times and temperatures vary, so the time may need to be adjusted.)
