Slow Cooker Oatmeal with Berries and Bananas

Closer to a warm muesli cereal than traditionally cooked oatmeal, crockpot oatmeal is an awesome way to make oatmeal.

My kids can never make up their minds about which oatmeal they like best. We eat a lot of oatmeal in this house. Traditional oatmeal, baked oatmeal, crockpot oatmeal, they are all frequently served here.

My husband is perfectly content with a classic bowl of oatmeal, but I love everything about the taste and texture of oatmeal cooked slowly in the crockpot.

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Cooking oatmeal in the crockpot might seem like a long time to wait for breakfast on a weekday morning, but it really is simple. And surprisingly, it doesn’t take all that much time to cook oatmeal in the slow cooker.

Stir the ingredients together and then walk away to get ready for your day. An hour later, everyone will be hungry and breakfast is ready to eat.

The flavors in this oatmeal are perfect together. The softened crunch of the pecans, the sweet bananas, the tartly sweet berries, the tender oats, and the brown sugar work together to make this a breakfast treat that the whole family enjoys.

Slow Cooker Oatmeal Recipe

  1. Combine milk, oats, bananas, strawberries, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in the crockpot.
  2. Cook on HIGH for 45-60 minutes or on LOW for 1-2 hours.
  3. Stir occasionally. Cook until thickened to desired consistency.

Cook’s Note: I rarely remember to stir mine and it turns out fine every time. The longer it cooks, the thicker the oatmeal will be.

Crock-Pot Oatmeal with Berries, Bananas, and Nuts

Crock-Pot Oatmeal is such an easy weekday breakfast. I love that I can toss everything together in the crock-pot when I start the coffee in the morning and breakfast is ready to eat by the time we are.

Overnight oats are next on my list to try, specifically these Strawberry Overnight Oats, you can make them two different ways and both recipes sound delicious.
