If breakfast at your house is anything like ours, it’s hurried and often very early since Lane or I have to train at 5:30 in the morning. We need something to keep us full, energized and give us that nutritional boosts that typical packaged breakfast foods just can’t offer. This slow cooker recipe is a great one to make on the weekends and portion out into individual containers for the week.  

Crock Pot Steel Cut Oats:

Makes 4-5 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons butter
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 Apples (Fuji or Gala or Honeycrisp) - peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup Steel Cut Oats (uncooked)
  • 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or less if you want it less sweet)
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Spray Crock-Pot with cooking spray.  
  2. Combine milk, water and butter in Crock Pot.  
  3. Add oats and remaining ingredients. Stir well.  
  4. Cook on low 3 hours until oats are soft.

* Keep an eye on this as my slow-cooker cooks relatively warm so mine are done cooking earlier. You can stir along the way to make sure the oats don't stick to the sides.

* Top with nuts when serving if desired.
