Slow Cooker Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oats

Throw the ingredients in your slow cooker before bed and you’ll have warm overnight apple cinnamon oats ready when you wake up.

Throw the ingredients in your slow cooker before bed and you’ll have warm overnight apple cinnamon oats ready when you wake up!
It seems as if I have “themes” every week, but I swear I don’t plan them out on purpose. I literally have an editorial calendar and as dishes I make are photographed, I plop them in the calendar with no rhyme or reason.

Last week was pizza week and this week is apparently crockpot week. But since it’s pretty much fall and we’ve already whipped out our crockpots, I have for you an amazing breakfast that cooks while you sleep so you get to wake up to a stick-to-your-bones breakfast! Not to mention, this will make your entire house smell like fall.

Throw the ingredients in your slow cooker before bed and you’ll have warm overnight apple cinnamon oats ready when you wake up.
I kept waking up in the middle of the night from the apple cinnamon smell but it didn’t bother me – my stomach was what was bothering me! It was wanting some of that oatmeal!

I’m going to be making more varieties of this in my crockpot because of all the leftovers I get with it. I love scooping a hefty amount in Tupperware and bringing it into work for a warm breakfast. It’s filling too so I’m not starving by 11am.

Rachel of Baked by Rachel is hosting an apple a day month (rightfully so considering September is the start of apple season!) and I’ve brought a large bowl of this over to her table! There’s been some mouthwatering recipes this month so far so be sure to check out what everyone else has brought!

    I love how you do with the crockpot!

    Have you ever made beans from scratch in a crock pot? I’m thinking about putting some chickpeas in there this morning and hope that when I come home, I can make hummus!

    The one time I made overnight oats in the crockpot they came out terrible (burned on the sides) and I never tried again. But I think it’s because my old crock was cheap and lacking in settings. I upgraded recently and I think I may have to give this a try!

      Mine were slightly burned on the sides but I like them like that cause I like crusty stuff (haha that sounded gross), so maybe try it for 6 hours instead of 7? or do it during the day so you can watch it the first time and then you can determine how many hours it will take you so then you can leave it overnight and not fear burnage :)

    The perfect solution to our fear of leaving the crockpot on while we’re at work! Overnight crockpotting!

    I seriously love that you made an apple slow cooker dish! This is insanely perfect. Thanks so much for making this for the party!! :)

      Where and how much do you use of all the ingredients for the overnight apple cinnamon oats recipe? Can’t make this without it Rachel?

        Hi Beverly, as stated in the post, you click the photo of the apple or click the highlighted text that links to the recipe on Rachel’s blog. Enjoy!

    Love doing oatmeal in the crockpot! Mine always get kinda brown around the edges too, but I don’t care–I just stir it in and mix it all together. I have read if you put it in a smaller dish inside of the crockpot, that doesn’t happen. Too much work for me. ;)

  6. 09/14/2012 at 8:48 am

    I love oatmeal and this sounds amazing. My crockpot often wakes me up in the middle of the night too with smells of goodness!!

  7. 09/14/2012 at 10:05 am

    I want to be all up in that like white on rice. BADABING! (I’VE LOST IT)

  8. 09/14/2012 at 10:12 am

    That’s how I organize posts too!

    I know I’m having oatmeal for breakfast this morning. =P

  9. 09/14/2012 at 10:16 am

    These sound great! Off to check out the recipe. =)

  10. 09/14/2012 at 10:30 am

    We’re totes on the same wavelength today!

    and this pretty much killeth me.

  11. Wow, this sounds amazing and I can never get enough of that apple cinnamon smell! I’d probably sleep by the crockpot all night ;)

    I think this would be a GREAT dish for when guests are visiting, that way I wouldn’t have to spend so much time in the kitchen. Pinned!

    I’ve never made oats in a crockpot before! Julie, I love that idea. warm oatmeal on a chilly fall morning.. there is certainly NOTHING like it. I love you photos, too :)

  13. 09/14/2012 at 12:08 pm

    I have never made anything sweet in the crockpot and I don’t know why! This looks amazing!

  14. 09/14/2012 at 1:18 pm

    Oatmeal is our breakfast staple…excited to try a new version.

  15. 09/14/2012 at 1:26 pm

    I saw your comment above, and I totlaly like the crusty edges as well. YUMMMM!

  16. 09/14/2012 at 2:10 pm

    Yes, bring on the crock pot recipes!! These flavors are outstanding!

  17. 09/14/2012 at 2:22 pm

    I’m definitely loving crockpot week! And I would LOVE to wake up to the smell of apple cinnamon and then dig into this in the morning before work! :)

  18. 09/14/2012 at 3:01 pm

    Looks delicious!!! When I tried slowcooker oats before they ended up too burned so it’s now 3 in the afternoon and I just started cooking this to see how long I need to cook it. Can’t wait for the fall smells!

  19. 09/14/2012 at 3:11 pm

    Umm this sounds incredible! Apple cinnamon is one of my favorite flavors of packaged oatmeal. When I am running late in the morning and don’t have time to prep breakfast, it’s usually what I eat because we have a Costco-sized box in our break room. This sounds like a much better alternative! Minimal prep!

  20. 09/15/2012 at 12:54 pm

    Oh my…this sounds soo yummy. I can literally smell it.
    I think this would be one thing to get be out of bed early :)

  21. 09/15/2012 at 11:01 pm

    This. Looks. Incredible. I’ve actually never slow-cooked something overnight, but I can imagine as all this apple cinnamon goodness wafts through the house, I’d probably be up at four am with a spoon, digging desperately into this.

  22. 09/16/2012 at 10:30 pm

    I can’t think of anything better than the idea of waking up to my apartment smelling like apples and cinnamon and my breakfast waiting for me!

  23. 09/17/2012 at 10:49 am

    How nice would it be to wake up to a big bowl of this oatmeal in the morning. It looks super comforting!

  24. 09/17/2012 at 8:37 pm

    I love the idea of waking up to the smell of apples and cinnamon baking. Is it weird to want to set the crockpot in my room while this bakes just for extra smells? :)

    How many does this serve..ok to double the receipe? How much longer do you think it will take to cook?

    Planning a girls weekend..this will be perfect..

    • 04/05/2013 at 7:53 am

      This serves 6-8, depending on your portion size. You would just double the cooking time if you doubled the recipe.
