Prep Time: 10 min

Slow Cook Time: 6 hours

Makes: 4-6 servings (depending how much you love oatmeal!)


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 ½ cup milk
  • 2 Granny Smith apples- peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup raisins (or another favorite dried fruit)
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 1 TBSP ground cinnamon
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Place the steel cut oats, milk, apple, raisins, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into a slow-cooker, and stir to combine.
  2. Cover the cooker, set to Low.
  3. Cook 6 hours.
  4. Top with walnuts or your favorite dried fruit then enjoy!


  • Add a bit of protein by stirring in some yogurt or protein powder to your serving.
  • Be sure to use steel cut oats not old fashioned or quick cook — they will hold up better in the slow-cooker.
  • Don’t overcook or oats may become mushy or burnt.
  • You can also cook these up during the day & reheat the next morning.
