Slow Cooked Banana Walnut Oatmeal - In the Crock-pot recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen More a warm muesli cereal than a cooked oatmeal, this breakfast truly surprised me. The flavors were perfect together. The nuts were softened to the perfect crunch.

The cinnamon, raisins and bananas all combined to make this a delicious breakfast. I have already printed a copy of this recipe and put it in my breakfast binder. This will be made repeatedly in the future.

Both of my older boys told me it was delicious and the baby was frantically signing “more, more, more” as I was finishing feeding him.

My oldest son (the child who avoids oatmeal whenever possible) requested this for breakfast tomorrow as he went to bed tonight. Apparently, it really was that good.

Slow Cooked Banana Walnut Oatmeal – In the Crock-pot

Recipe adapted from and with thanks to The Reluctant Entertainer
Pin Print Review


  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 large bananas sliced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup raisins


  • Place all ingredients in the crock-pot. Cook on HIGH for 1 hour or on LOW for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until desired consistency. (Confession: I turned the crockpot on and promptly forgot to check it for the next hour. It was perfect when I tested it at the hour mark.)
  • * I used a 2 quart crockpot for this recipe, but it would work fine in a larger one. Just watch the oatmeal and see if it is cooking more quickly than the recipe describes.

    I've never tried to make oatmeal in a crockpot! This would be wonderful for having guests over and waking to the aromas in my kitchen! I'm looking forward to trying this!

    I have such a fear of hot oatmeal (oh, the gloppy horrors of my childhood!), but I bet this would be yummy all blended into a smoothie!!

    What a great idea to make this in the crock pot. I never would have thought of that. It looks and sounds like a wonderful breakfast…and it's so healthy! I need to make this as soon as I get myself a crock pot! 🙂
