    1. I do not see any reason why you couldn’t do it this way. The steel cut oats cooked in the slow cooker with just water end with a fairly creamy consistency even without milk though.

  1. I am having a hard time finding steel cut oats. All I can find are whole grain rolled oats. We don’t have Trader Joes or Costco around my area…just Walmart, HyVee, Jewels..

    1. My local stores have them with the regular oatmeal. You may also want to look in the organic/natural foods section if they are not with the regular oatmeal. Finally, you can often find them in bulk food stores or sections as well.
