Overnight Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal

READY IN: 7hrs 5mins
Recipe by Mandy at Food.com

A super-simple way to get a hearty breakfast on the table without any work! This recipe was inspired by an overnight maple and brown sugar oatmeal on MelsKitchenCafe.com (http://www.melskitchencafe.com). Make sure to use steel-cut oats, otherwise you'll end up with a pot of gummy paste.

Although I did not have apple cider and substituted water, this turned out great! I added one chopped apple and some pecans last night, then added honey and cream this morning. Wonderful having breakfast ready for you!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat the inside of a 4-5 quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker and stir. I find it helpful to mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon; the cinnamon gets better incorporated and doesn't separate from the mix as much.
  3. Cook for 7-8 hours on low.
  4. Stir thoroughly before serving with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers; reheat with a splash of milk.
  7. *This recipe is easily cut in half for smaller slow-cookers. A time of 4 hours is optimal.
