Apple-Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Introduction

Start the day off right with sweet and creamy slow cooker oats for breakfast. The evaporated milk adds such creaminess that you'll think you're having pudding for breakfast.

    I make a similar recipe with steel cut oats (1 1/2 cups), NO evaporated milk, 1/4 cup sliced almonds, and 5 cups of water for 8 hours; love it. - 3/28/12

    My favorite breakfast is oatmeal! Sometimes, I don't have time to make it though. This recipe makes it possible to have it every morning! I put it in six microwaveable dishes with lids, and refrigerate. Then pack one to go if breakfast is going to be a little later, and not at home! - 5/16/12

    I have a similar recipe but doesn't use milk. For the liquid I use Apple juice, instead of water. I also add walnuts, raisins, and nutmeg. Every batch tastes just a bit different as I love to experiment. - 3/29/12

    Terrific recipe, and versatile--can easily reduce it or increase it, depending on how many you need to serve, add or change ingredients, and slow cook it or not! I used steel-cut oats, added water and a half cup of Greek yogurt in place of evapo milk and natural unsweetened applesauce for one apple. - 5/9/12

    Waking up to the smell of fresh apple cinnamon oatmeal was wonderful, but I didn't like the consistency of the recipe. This was much too mushy for me. If you like runnier oatmeal, you will like this recipe. - 3/27/12

    Just a comment for those who don't know this already: but the oats that take 3 minutes in the microwave/stove top are QUICK oats. 'Real' oats take much longer and is what should be used here. Also, subbing apple juice for the milk is a very high calorie sub. add a star anise or cloves for a change. - 11/23/12

    The original recipe is very good. Last night I discovered I didn't have the apples. So I substituted 1 c. unsweetened blueberry applesauce and cut the water back by 1/2 cup. It worked great and shows how versatile this recipe can be. No reason to miss a hot breakfast ever again, even running late! - 3/8/12

    The taste was fine but the consistency was soupy. Read other comments and would like to use steel cut oats next time. - 4/2/12

    Sounds good. Can Fat Free Evaporated Milk be used? - 3/8/12

    The nutrition info is WAY off on this one.
    Triple the carbs listed! 27 grams total per serving, not 9!
    18g of carbs for .33 c of oats.
    7g of carbs for .33 apple.
    2g of carbs for .08 c evaporated milk.
    Dangerous mistake for anyone with diabetes.
    Please update the info! - 1/12/13

    Oh my goosh- good catch. I've changed the nutritionals on the recipe. The oats that I selected from the nutrition tracker did not list carbs on the orginal recipe.

    Very nice. I added some Splenda to the mix for added sweetness. I also let it cook a little longer to thicken. - 5/12/12

    I make this but reduce the water to five cups and add a little ground cloves, ginger chopped walnuts and raisins to cook all night. The raisins plump so nice and are like a little burst of flavor all their own when you bite into them. - 11/22/12

    Not quite sure what I did wrong but it was more "soupy" than anything and rather bland. Once it cooled it did "gel" more but never even remotely looked like the photo that's shown. I'll try this again but will cut back on the water. - 4/10/12

    We were a little disappointed with this, as we have tried slow cooker oats before and this ended up quite mushy. We did use regular rolled oats and I wonder if it would have turned out better with thick rolled oats. We have had better luck with steel cut oats in the slow cooker. - 4/7/12

    this is a very good recipe except I just make it with water instead of milk and add a little brown sugar to it.it makes a lot so I freeze my portions and I'm ready for my early mornings at work. - 11/22/13

    When I make this, I use 2 cups steel-cut rolled oats, 4 cups water (no milk), 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 apple diced and 1/2 cup raisins. When I serve, I add splenda or truvia because it needs "something"! This is so nice to wake up to. - 6/19/13

    Take the same ingredients and make on the stove top. Chef Galvin

    I made this during the day, so that it was done at night, then refrigerated it in 1-cup containers overnight. The consistency was perfect in the morning! Great recipe, and I'll look forward to trying it with steel-cut oats. - 12/2/12

    If the recipe calls for granny smith apples, why are the apples in the picture red? - 11/8/12

    My son loved it but my husband said it was too bland. I will try it again and use some of the other add ins to see if my family enjoys the taste more. - 10/26/12

    I, too, thought it was soupy for my taste. My husband likes his oatmeal that way. I put mine on the stove and cooked a little longer at higher temp. I added nutmeg and walnuts. Do like the convenience of putting it in one cup containers for another breakfast. - 10/17/12
