Crockpot Easy Overnight Oatmeal

Easy Overnight Oatmeal made in the crockpot is one of my favorite breakfast foods.  I love putting it in the slow cooker before bed and waking up to a delicious smelling house in the morning!

Crockpot overnight oatmeal is an easy breakfast recipe that is perfect for company!

You can add other fruits too! It is so simple to make and perfect if you are feeding a crowd or you are hosting a breakfast or a brunch.

Simply coat the inside of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (you can use a liner if you choose).  Next combine all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and mix well.  Add your lid and cook on low overnight for 7-8 hours.  In the morning be sure you check so it doesn’t overcook.   I have also used coconut milk and almond milk with this recipe for those who can’t tolerate dairy.

I like to add additional toppings like milk, butter, honey, nutmeg, chocolate chips, maple syrup and additional fruit toppings.  It has be made with or without apples so you can allow your guests to add whichever fruit toppings that they choose.

We find this Easy Breakfast Recipe to one of our favorites for Christmas morning.  Simply turn on the slow cooker before you got to bed and it is ready when you get up.  All of our family loves this recipe and oatmeal is my Dad’s favorite breakfast food so this is a winner for him every time.  We hope you enjoy this delicious Easy Overnight Oatmeal breakfast as much as we do!  It is our go-to breakfast when serving a crowd because it can easily be doubled.

  1. This sounds so good. I didn’t even know y’all had recipes on this site until tonight, when I read the 3 min. pasta contest. I am glad I looked! I am finding some really good recipes.

  2. If you have a newer crockpot, leave it on warm for most of the night and turn it up to high for about a half hour or otherwise it will overcook!

  3. I love the apple, raisin, cinnamon, walnut combo. This would get the family out of bed on a cold winter’s morning.
