The Perfect Overnight Oatmeal Recipe

It’s always so nice to have a warm breakfast, but sometimes in the rush of the morning it can be hard to make a fresh pot of oatmeal or scramble up eggs. This slow cooker oatmeal makes enjoying a warm breakfast a cinch! Add everything to the crockpot the night before, set it for 8 hours, and enjoy a deliciously rich and creamy breakfast bowl.

One of my requirements for a successful slow cooker recipe is that it can take at least 7 to 8 hours. Slow cooker recipes that are for 3 to 4 hours on low are not really helpful to me, outside of the weekend. If I can throw something in overnight then it really is time-saving for me.

This oatmeal is made with common ingredients that you probably already have on hand - like almond milk, steel cut oats, apples, and peanut butter. It's a lot more fun if you can throw a bunch of toppings on as well - fresh fruit works great, as do chopped nuts and dried fruit.


How to Make Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Oatmeal

To make this delicious overnight crockpot oatmeal, follow these simple instructions.

  • Add everything to the slow cooker. Combine the oats, almond milk, water, and peanut butter in a slow cooker. Stir till the peanut butter is combined with the oats. Add the apples, sugar, and salt. Stir to combine.

  • Set it and forget it. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.

  • Serve and enjoy! Garnish with optional toppings.

Tips for this Oatmeal Recipe

  • If your oatmeal seems a bit dry in the morning, just add a little extra almond milk to it.

  • You can use any type of apples in this recipe, but I recommend using Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, or Golden Delicious apples which are all very tasty when cooked.

  • This recipe will keep in the fridge for up to two days. It reheats well but is a little less moist. Splash it with some extra almond milk or water and you should be fine!

  • It's important to use steel cut oats in this recipe - not rolled oats. Rolled oats will end up as a soggy mess after this many hours in a slow cooker.

  • If you are looking for a new slow cooker, I use and really recommend this All Clad Slow Cooker . This one is only 4-quart, but they make them larger as well!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
