Crockpot Oatmeal with Fruit

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

Most of the time, we use our crockpots to make dinner, but using a crockpot or slow cooker for breakfast makes the morning rush much easier.

I like oatmeal, especially with fruit and raisins, and usually eat some every morning. I’ll have to admit though, my family doesn’t share my love for oatmeal.  So I usually have it during the week when I’m not cooking a big breakfast for them.

This oatmeal has apples, cinnamon and raisins, but it’s easy enough to change the ingredients to suit your taste.

Have a hearty and easy breakfast when you serve Crockpot Oatmeal with Fruit - recipe from HoosierHomemade.com
Ingredients
  • 3 cups Cold Water
  • 1 Apple, cored, peeled and cut into ½ inch chunks
  • 1½ cups Old Fashion Oatmeal (not quick cooking)
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ cup Raisins
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in the crockpot before going to bed.
  2. Cook on low overnight, 8-10 hours.
  3. Serve with milk.

Note: The directions that I found at cd kitchen, did not say to spray the crockpot with cooking spray, next time I will definately do this. Also, the raisins were a little mushy, I would maybe add them a little later, or when you get up, maybe an hour before you eat. You could also boil them on the stove for a couple minutes and then just stir them in.

    Liz, I just discovered your blog last week and am a fellow Hoosier. My standby breakfast is old fashioned oatmeal, cooked on top of the stove. I use a tiny bit of brown sugar, cinnamon, and add one tablespoon creamy peanut butter, and if I have any nuts, just a few sprinkled on top. It’s like dessert to me. The idea for the peanut butter came from a WW meeting years ago. I am enjoying your blog!

    this sounds like a fabulous idea! i’m curious, tho: i’ve really taken a liking to steel-cut oats lately, which take about 30-45 minutes to cook on the stovetop. do you think those would work as well as old-fashioned oats, here? my gut instinct is that it would be fine, but i thought i’d check and see if anyone knows for sure, before i try it out. :)
