Slow Cooker Apple Oatmeal

  • Cooking Time:

    8 Hours
  • Servings:

    6

Ingredients

4 c. Vanilla Almond Milk
4 T. Honey
2 T. Butter
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
2 c. Dry Old-Fashioned Oats (NOT Instant)
2 c. Apples (peeled and sliced)
1/2 c. Chopped Walnuts (optional)
3 T. Brown Sugar, if desired

Slow Cook­er Apple Oat­meal is one of my all-time favorite Slow Cook­er break­fast recipes — actu­al­ly, one of my all-time favorite break­fasts!  I usu­al­ly dou­ble the recipe and reheat left­overs for dessert lat­er in the day or for break­fast the next day.
If you want to wake up to this deli­cious­ness in your slow cook­er, you can do what I do: I prep the ingre­di­ents before going to bed, then set my alarm and get up place every­thing in the slow cook­er 5–6 hours before I want to eat break­fast.  Then I go back to bed and let my slow cook­er do all the mag­ic.  Wak­ing up to the aro­ma of Slow Cook­er Apple Oat­meal is such a nice treat.  I hope your fam­i­ly loves this as mine!

  1. Mix all ingre­di­ents togeth­er and place in a slow cook­er greased with but­ter. (or use a slow cook­er lin­er)
  2. Using a pro­gram­ma­ble slow cook­er and Cov­er & Cook on LOW for 1 hour, then let it switch to WARM for the rest of the night while you’re sleep­ing. (about 8 hours in total)
  3. Serve by itself or top with milk (espe­cial­ly good this way for the kid­dos!)

Option­al: Add 1/2 cup of raisins before Crock­ing.

(NOTE: I updat­ed this recipe on 7/25/15 — ingre­di­ents have been dou­bled (a sin­gle batch sim­ply cooked too fast for most peo­ple using a medi­um sized slow cook­er.  Cook­ing time has been updat­ed from 5–6 hours on LOW.  I now set it to LOW for one hour when I go to bed, then let it cook on WARM for the rest of the night.  This pre­vents the oat­meal from over­cook­ing.)

Hap­py Crock­ing!

i’ve made this twice. the first time it was good. the sec­ond time it was amaz­ing!! the sec­ond time I dou­bled the recipe using 1/2 milk and 1/2 water. not nuts (i don’t like nuts) but yes to raisins. I’m still eat­ing on it, just keep­ing in the fridge. Yum­my!!

This is so good! I don’t like oat­meal, so I made it for my hus­band, and I LOVED this. The next time I will prob­a­bly adjust the brown sug­ar, because it tast­ed like a desert it was so good. Didn’t I already say that! 🙂

If this only cooks for 5–6 hrs, then it seems that you would have to stay up till mid­night to put this one, then get up at 6 to turn the crock pot off. How does this work? If I put this on at 10pm tonight, will it be okay to cook till I get up at 6:15?

thanks,

I dou­bled and used almond milk instead of reg­u­lar milk. It took the entire 6 hours to cook when dou­bling. The whole fam­i­ly loved this. (also omit­ted nuts)

Could you use steel cut oats? Or do half rolled, half steel cut?

How would the stats look if you used Splen­da in place of either the hon­ey or the brown sug­ar? Or the splen­da ver­sion of brown sug­ar? Try­ing to make this a lit­tle more friend­ly to my diet.

I used agave nec­tar in place of hon­ey since its bet­ter for you and it tast­ed just fine.

So 1cup sliced apple should equate to 1 apple, right? Also, what type of apple has worked best. Granny Smith?

I liked the fla­vor but mine came out *very* mushy! Is this nor­mal, or would it maybe work bet­ter at a lit­tle less time in my crock­pot? I cooked it for six hours (didn’t check at five because I was asleep 😉 on low and then left it on warm for anoth­er hour or so until we were ready to eat. A very small por­tion on the right side burned a lit­tle, but the rest was fine. Just a weird, gushy con­sis­ten­cy! I still thought it was good but would def­i­nite­ly pre­fer a more oat­meal-y tex­ture if possible…thought I’d see… Read more »

I knew I’d nev­er be able to get up super ear­ly to start this so I made 1 1/2 times the recipe in a 3 qt crock. Turned it on high at about 10:30 pm. After approx 45 mins, I turned it to warm and left it like that until 7 am. Turned out per­fect­ly!

I made it with water, sub­sti­tut­ed raisins instead of apples and omit­ted hon­ey. Oth­er­wise I used your recipe, THANKS for post­ing this, it was vey yum­my, I will be mak­ing this a lot. It came out fine using water. I just made it dur­ing the day and will heat it up in the morn­ing in the microwave, that is if I don ‘t just it it as dessert.

Rhonda

I read some­one else’s post won­der­ing if water would work. I’m won­der­ing if that was ever tried. Also, is the nutri­tion label with the recipe the val­ues for the entire recipe or is that per serv­ing (4 serv­ings?)

I made it with water and it was deli­cious!

I made this yes­ter­day & it is deli­cious. My ques­tion is: the nutri­tion­al info, is that for the whole recipe? I am count­ing my weight watch­er points & try­ing to deter­mine how much to eat. Hope­ful­ly the ni is for the whole amount! 🙂

I used very vanil­la soy milk and sub­sti­tut­ed the apples and spices for pump­kin puree and 2 tea­spoons of pump­kin pie spice. Kids loved it!

I was so excit­ed for this recipe, but.…. it came out so rub­bery we could not eat it. I even added more liq­uid because I live in a very dry area. It only cooked for 4 hours on low. If some­one out there has an idea on how to make this not rub­bery I would love it.

Hi! This sounds amaz­ing! I have recent­ly cut dairy from my diet. I already enjoy Almond milk but was won­der­ing about the but­ter. I know it says “no sub­sti­tutes” BUT would it be ok to use Earth Bal­ance dairy free but­ter? I REALLY want to try this!!! I’ve been look­ing for some­thing new for break­fast.

I made this last night and it turned out great. I used water instead of milk because I plugged my crock pot into a timer and didn’t want the milk sit­ting out. I also used raisins instead of nuts. I did mine for about 4 hrs and the kids liked it but I thought it was prob­a­bly a lit­tle over done. The very edges on the bot­tom got a lit­tle burnt and I thought if I would have done it about 3 and a 1/2 hrs it prob­a­bly would have been fine. I would like to make it and dou­ble… Read more »

I made this last night in my new 4qt (i think that’s the size) Hamil­ton beach crock pot. I learned that new­er crock pots cook faster so I decid­ed to check it at 3hrs & it was per­fect­ly done (I dou­bled the recipe bc it didn’t seem half way full). My only dis­ap­point­ment was the sweet­ness. There was none. I was almost wor­ried it would be too sweet since every­one was say­ing it tast­ed like dessert. I did use water though so idk if that made a dif­fer­ence. Will def­i­nite­ly make again with milk instead of water & gala apples… Read more »

Loved this recipe! I see that you say “no sub­sti­tute” for but­ter which I would have agreed with before we found out our child has a dairy aller­gy. Now I am always sub­sti­tut­ing dairy-free options in all our recipes and Earth’s Bal­ance worked great in this one. If there are any oth­ers out there with aller­gies or choos­ing a Veg­an lifestyle, this recipe is won­der­ful and easy with dairy-free options! Love your site and the options for so many recipes that work with our family’s needs! Thanks!

I just made it for break­fast tomor­row. It was in there just shy of 5 hours and the sides were start­ing to burn. I just tried it and it is kin­da bland. I used a granny smith apple. Maybe that’s the prob­lem? I would dou­ble or tripe the brown sug­ar. Maybe I just like my oat­meal real­ly sweet. I’m going to try it again. I am going to see if 4 hours will work bet­ter.

Hi…I want to make this for a work break­fast for close to 70 peo­ple. There will be oth­er things to eat there, but I want to make a much as I can in my 6 quart crock pot. How much of the ingre­di­ents will I need? Thanks!
