How to Make Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal
This is super easy to make too! I used my smaller 4-quart crockpot and in went oats, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, milk, and a couple of tbsp of baking mix. I used gluten free ingredients for the oats and baking mix, but you can use regular too. I just mixed it all up in the crockpot so I wouldn't have as many dirty dishes.
Crank that crockpot on high for 2 hours, or low for 4 hours.
This oatmeal has a side effect. The aroma of the cinnamon will go traveling through your house and wake people up. It's a dangerous thing. 😉
When it is done, ....well, it looks like oatmeal. Nothing remarkable yet. Let me tell you what. The taste of this "unremarkable oatmeal" will floor you.
This is the kicker. Scoop your oatmeal into a bowl and drizzle it with a little bit of glaze (recipe below). It doesn't take much to give it that cinnamon roll feel.
Sprinkle it with some cinnamon (not too much) or cinnamon sugar and grab a spoon. I can't believe how much this tastes like a cinnamon roll. My son, who hates oatmeal, licked his bowl clean. We are talking; there is no evidence oatmeal ever existed in it. LOL
Just substitute gluten free oats, and gluten free baking mix (or flour mix).
This is also so easy to make dairy free. Just use a dairy free milk substitute. My personal favorite is canned coconut milk. It adds a richness.
