  • 2 cups uncooked steel cut oats don’t use quick-cooking or old-fashioned rolled oats because they will get too mushy
  • ½ teaspoon salt or more, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 8 cups water
  • ¼ cup molasses can substitute with maple syrup, but it won’t have that true “gingerbread” taste, plus more for serving
  • Optional toppings: whipped cream chopped toasted pecans, dried cranberries, raisins, Greek yogurt
  1. Spray the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and stir well. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
