Delicious Slow-Cooker Oatmeal (And I don’t even like oatmeal)

It’s true, oatmeal is typically not my breakfast food of choice. But, when I was getting ready for the Christmas Eve Brunch that Sam and I hosted for our families at our house, I stumbled across this delicious recipe on Pinterest.


Many of you also know that I am obsessed with My CROCK-POT. Well, I should probably say my CROCK-POT collection of all shapes, sizes, and patterns. And I have my eye on another new one as well! The one you see in the picture is my very first CROCK-POT, bought for my by my favorite Auntie Kathy when I moved into my first apartment.

Follow this link to find the original recipe for this Apple Cinnamon, Steel-Cut Oatmeal. The original recipe is delicious, but we made the following tweeks to it, the second time.

  1. I did not include the optional butter. It just felt like wasted calories.
  2. I used 3 apples instead of 2. Who doesn’t like more apples?
  3. I added 2 more teaspoons of brown sugar.
  4. I added 1/4 cup of craisins.


Finally, we topped this oatmeal off with heavy cream and candied walnuts. It went over really well, and it tasted like dessert!
