I was really excited when I first saw a recipe for crock pot oatmeal on Pinterest. I mean who doesn’t like a crock pot recipe. And it cooks while you are sleeping and is ready for you to eat when you get up for breakfast! It doesn’t get much better than that.

I searched the Internet for different crock pot oatmeal recipes and noticed that some of them use steel cut oats and some use old-fashioned oatmeal.


Either work great but there might be a little change in the consistency. You definitely don’t want to use quick cooking oats, they will cook too fast.


I recently started stocking up on some pantry basics and purchased my first 25 lb bag of old-fashioned oatmeal! I think it worked out to about .50 a pound. Gotta love that.

Crock Pot Oatmeal Recipe


2 cups old fashioned or steel cut oats
4 apples, peeled and chopped
4 cups water
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Pinch of salt


Place all ingredients together in crock pot. Do not stir. Cook on low for approximately 8 hours and you will have the most delicious porridge like oatmeal. It is the perfect consistency. I could seriously eat this every morning for breakfast AND it is healthy. Well, depending on how much brown sugar you put in it!


This recipe is perfect for cold winter mornings. For larger families a double recipe will fit in a standard sized crock pot. You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator to heat up later.

  1. Love this recipe! I like to add raisins, but they have to be added in the last 30-60 minutes. Otherwise, they bubble up and get mushy. Overnight, I do about 6-7 hours depending on how thick you like it. Thank you for posting!


  2. I doubled the recipe using two cups of old fashioned and two cups of steel cut oats. I also substituted the brown sugar with maple syrup. It came out great.


  3. I made this substituted half of the water with apple cider. Also cooked on low for 4 hours. I feel 8 would have been too dried out. It was perfect!


  4. I am wanting to make this for a potluck. Could I double the recipe and fit in the crock pot or should I do 1.5x recipe?


    1. Depends of the size of your crock pot! I don’t think a double recipe would fit, but 1.5x recipe might fit.


    1. Hi! I don’t remember for sure but it does make quite a bit. I would say at least 6-8 servings.


  5. Good! I added a little milk in the morning as it got a touch dry being in overnight, but it was tasty.
