  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 2-1/2 cup almond milk can substitute with soy, coconut, or oat milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons chai spice see recipe notes
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • non stick cooking spray can substitute with coconut oil


  • Generously spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker and mix to combine.
  • Set on low for 8 hours (this could vary with different slow cookers. See notes)


To DIY your own chai spice blend:
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground all spice
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 teaspoons ground ginger
Crockpot times may vary. I recommend doing a test run first before leaving it on for 8 hours.
