Overnight Slow Cooker Baked Oatmeal Recipes | Crock Pot Recipes | Weight Watchers Breakfast
Years ago, an online friend introduced me to some amazing Crock Pot Recipes. Slow Cooker Recipes are awesome because they’re so easy to make! They’re not fast, but they don’t take much of YOUR time. You just set everything up and let it cook for several hours.

In our Crockpot Oatmeal Recipe, you put everything in the Crock Pot the night before and by morning it will be ready to eat! And, your house will smell amazing. This does not disappoint, trust me. Even if you don’t love oatmeal because it’s smooshie or slimy, you will love this! See, you this isn’t made with traditional rolled oats (regular oatmeal), it’s made with steel cut oats which remind me of Grape Nuts cereal. When cooked overnight, oatmeal recipes with steel cut oats are a great consistency. Not weird or runny – just right!
The first recipe below is mine! The second is a great Weight Watchers recipe that’s almost exactly the same but has different flavors. The third is an Amish Baked Oatmeal you don’t want to miss! Enjoy them and let me know what you think!
Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Crockpot Oatmeal with Apples Recipe
- 2 cups steel cut oats (NOTE: do not use instant or rolled oats like traditional oatmeal)
- 8 cups water
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 apples, peeled and diced
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup sliced bananas
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Coat Crockpot with nonstick cooking spray (e.g. Pam cooking spray)
- Add in all ingredients except bananas and walnut, stir
- Slow cook on LOW for 6-8 hours
- 10-15 minutes before serving, add bananas and walnuts and stir
- Add additional brown sugar and cinnamon if you’d like
Consider yourself warned about how good this recipe is!! The full recipe makes a very large batch of oatmeal. I usually halve everything instead because there’s nothing like waking up to the smell of this delightful morsel, and eating it fresh and hot! Set it up the evening before you want it for breakfast, and let it cook overnight. Your house will smell fantastic in the morning!
Thanks to Jacque for giving me this recipe years ago, so that I might become ever-so-slightly addicted to Crockpot Oatmeal. 🙂
Weight Watchers Cranberry Maple Slow Cooker Oatmeal Recipe
- 8 cup(s) water
- 2 cup(s) uncooked steel cut oats
- 2/3 cup(s) dried cranberries, chopped
- 1/2 cup(s) maple syrup
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp table salt
- 3 Tbsp slivered almonds, toasted
- Combine all ingredients, except almonds, in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker
- Cook on low power for 4 to 6 hours, depending on desired creaminess
- Stir well to combine and then sprinkle with almonds
Yields about 3/4 cup oatmeal and 1 teaspoon almonds per serving.
Notes: Be sure to use steel-cut oats for this recipe as regular oatmeal will not hold up to this length of cooking. If you like your oatmeal very creamy, you can cook it up to 8 hours.
