Overnight Crockpot Oatmeal

I've been dying to try an overnight crockpot oatmeal recipe, so I prepared the following and took it to my parents' house on Christmas morning.  I thought it was really good, but could have done with a little less cinnamon and a little less time in the crockpot.  I also prefer to make my oatmeal with almond milk rather than water.  It ended up cooking/staying warm way past 9 hours, but it was still good. 

Apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and Craisins

Add oatmeal on top.

Perfect for cold mornings.

Overnight Crockpot Oatmeal with Apples


•    2 apples, chopped
•    1/2 cup of Craisins
•    ½ cup of chopped almonds
•    1/3 cup of brown sugar
•    4 cups of water
•    2 cups of old-fashioned oats
•    2 teaspoons of cinnamon
•    1 teaspoon of salt


1.    Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together and then coat the apples and craisins.
2.    Mix oatmeal with water and salt.
3.    Put apples in bottom of crockpot and pour oatmeal on top.  Do NOT stir.
4.    Cover and cook overnight on low for 8-9 hours.
5.    In the morning, stir thoroughly and serve with milk and additional brown sugar.
