Usually, when I wake up, I go straight for a big cup of coffee. I don’t have time to make a big breakfast, so I just grab something quick, like a banana.
On nights that I remember to think about what I want to eat for breakfast the next morning, I make my go-to crockpot oatmeal recipe! It’s so easy to assemble, just put everything into the ccrockpot and go to bed. Make it right before you go to sleep, so it’s ready when you wake up! It doesn’t get much easier than this!
I have a confession to make…
I’m obsessed with Svelte organic protein shakes.
Speaking of an easy breakfast, these are great for a grab and go breakfast or snack. My favorite flavor is Cappuccino, it tastes just like my favorite blended coffee! I like to bring these with me when I have a lot of errands to run, and I won’t be home to fix a healthy lunch. They have 11g of organic protein, only 6g of sugar and 20% of your daily fiber. It’s a perfect pick-me-up snack, on the go!
The Chocolate flavor tastes just like chocolate milk, which I absolutely love.
I thought it would be perfect as a substitute for the plain almond milk I usually make my crockpot oatmeal with. Chocolate and peanut butter are one of my favorite flavor combos, so the peanut butter drizzle really topped it off!
For the peanut butter drizzle, I use a natural peanut butter that’s very smooth and runny. My mom tried to make this with her fresh ground peanut butter and she couldn’t get it to swirl like mine did, but big spoonfuls are just as yummy!
Crockpot Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Oatmeal
I love that I can make this in my small crockpot, it’s such a time saver! The mini crock is so convenient and the perfect size for overnight oatmeal. One cup of oats might not seem like a lot, but they soak up all the water and puff up pretty big.
Just make sure you use steel cut oats! Rolled, quick, or old fashioned oats won’t work the same– it’ll end up being a mushy mess. This amount usually lasts me for 2-3 breakfasts. You can double the recipe, but make sure you switch to a bigger crockpot or it will probably overflow.
Who’s going to turn down secretly healthy dessert for breakfast?! Nobody, that’s who! Kids and adults will gobble this up! Travis, my fiancé, was ready for his second helping before I even finished adding the peanut butter to my first bowl. I’d say this recipe is a keeper!

Crock Pot Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Oatmeal
- Add the steel cut oats, water, chocolate protein shake, sea salt, and maple syrup to a mini crockpot. Cook on low (overnight) for 7-8 hours.
- Top with a drizzle of peanut butter and a few chocolate chips over each bowl. (I use natural peanut butter that's very runny so it's easy to drizzle. If you can only spoon it out of the jar, just use your spoon and swirl it into the oatmeal.)
