Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 2-3
  • ½ cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup milk or half and half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ dried apples or other dried fruit (optional)
  1. Start this recipe just before you go to bed:
  2. Find a heat proof bowl that will hold all the ingredients and will also fit into your crock pot with a space around it for a water bath. Note: If you are using dried fruit they will plump up when cooking so also allow space in the bowl for that as well.
  3. Mix all the ingredients and pour into the heat proof bowl that will fit into your crock pot.
  4. Pour water into the crock pot surrounding the bowl for the water bath and fill to the same level of the liquid in your bowl. Place the lid on your crock pot, and cook on low for 7-8 hours. If you like a creamier oatmeal add some warm milk or cream to thin it out just a bit.
  5. You can top with cream, raisins, dried cranberries, brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans and walnuts, etc. (Get all your toppings out in bowls and cover with plastic wrap so that it will be ready also in the morning.)
