Slow Cooker Purple Sweet Potato Casserole Oatmeal

I love purple sweet potatoes because, well, they’re purple. They taste the same as orange ones but love the extra attention, making them the narcissists of the vegetable kingdom… Plus it’s great for a monster breakfast for Halloween!

Ingredients

This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that’s 1½ to 2 quarts
½ cup steel-cut oats
2 cups unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk
1 cup chopped peeled purple sweet potato (or use a regular sweet potato)
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch ground allspice
pinch ground cloves
pinch nutmeg
sweetener to taste (brown sugar is great, but agave, stevia, etc. will still work fine)
toppings:
2 tablespoon chopped pecans (or whole ones to make monster face)
2 tablespoons vegan mini-marshmallows (2 smashed with cardamom or black sesame seeds for pupils if making monster)
2 tablespoon agave nectar
optional slivered almonds (for scary monster mouth)

Directions

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later. Add everything except sweetener and toppings to the slow cooker. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours). In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should become a more uniform consistency. If there are still chunks of potato smash them with a fork. Add some water if it’s still a little thick. Taste and sweeten. Top with toppings and make a monster face if you’re in the mood (or just in a mood).
