"S'nores" S'mores Oatmeal - Gluten-Free

I turned S'mores into Oatmeal!
Why the "S'nores?" in the title?
You see, on the 4th of July, we were all sitting around a campfire and my son asked for something unusual!  Let me show you...

Our FitAddict friend Andrea Lauren challenged me to make S'nores Oatmeal, so we did!
How does it taste?  Incredible.  No, for real.  It's amazing.  Sinful.  And OH SO GOOD!  And you know what?!  It's really not all that bad for you!  You can leave out the brown sugar and cut down on the calories, but I threw it in there for the kids' pleasure.  I owed them one.  They eat everything healthy I throw at them.  They make me a super proud mommy!

We used dark chocolate chips, but you can use milk chocolate if you like.  We also used gluten-free graham crackers, but you could use regular if you're not gluten-free.  
This is a super fun recipe for the kids because it's EASY to assemble and then when it's done, the kids get to "decorate" their oatmeal!  My kids are suckers for this!

Servings: 4-6

1 cup gluten-free steel cut oats
2 cups almond milk
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

Dark Chocolate Chips
Mini Marshmallows
Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

Directions: (Use a 2-3 quart Slow Cooker for this)
In a well-greased crock, place the steel cut oats.

Pour in the milk, brown sugar and vanilla.

Give it a stir.

Cook it on LOW for 8 hours, or on HIGH for 4 hours.
Stir and place into bowls.
Place your toppings into separate bowls and let your kids (or you!) decorate their bowls of oatmeal!

It's super fun for the kids to do!
I took a quick video of my kids decorating their oatmeal!
