Filled with creamy oats, sweet bananas, and berries, a hint of brown sugar, and spices, this Slow Cooker Oatmeal is a breakfast that my whole family enjoys. Best of all, this slow cooker oatmeal can be made in just one hour!

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

Crockpot Oatmeal

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.

Baked Oatmeal is an awesome breakfast for a crowd. The recipe can easily be multiplied to serve as many as you need to feed.

This Stovetop Nutty Raisin Oatmeal has been Sean’s favorite oatmeal for as long as I can remember. And this Blueberries and Cream Oatmeal is my weakness every single time berries are in season.

    Ooohh.. that looks so good! A nice comforting breakfast. I still have not made oatmeal in the crockpot – must fix that soon!

    Summer is one of my favorite times to eat oatmeal because of all the fruit/berry mix-ins! I love that with the slow cooker, you don't have to stand over a hot stove to make it!

    With my ongoing root canal saga (still not done; maybe next Tuesday, if the infection is gone by then), I'm eating a lot of oatmeal. This looks beautiful, although we never have an hour extra in the morning!

    A great idea! I will give my family oatmeal in the morning. It is good for health, and also keeps you energized throughout the day.

      That’s kind of funny. I hadn’t noticed that there weren’t comments on this one. I always hear from people who love it on social media. I hope you try it and love it as much as we do, Alora!

    Absolutely delicious and so easy! I didn’t have strawberries so just added an extra banana. This was so good and just enough sweetness. Highly recommend!5 stars
