- 2 tablespoons butter
- 90g porridge oats
- 700ml milk
- 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar (optional)
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 large apples - peeled, cored and cubed
MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:7hr ›Ready in:7hr15min
- Grease the inside of your slow cooker with the butter (if you're not using the double boiler method in our tips section - recommended!)
- Put all the ingredients except for the apples into your slow cooker. Give it a good stir to mix well and dissolve the sugar (if using). Add the apples. Turn the slow cooker on to low and cook for 7 hours. Spoon into warmed bowls and serve.
To avoid overcooking your porridge, it's worth first trying this during the day when you can supervise it. I would strongly recommend using the double boiler method for this to save on washing up (porridge is hard to get off your slow cooker). Put all your ingredients into a bowl that sits snugly in your slow cooker. Pour water between the bowl and the slow cooker. Cook as per the above instructions.
You can use less or more depending on how creamy you like this or you can use half milk and half water.

Easy slow cooker oatmeal with healthy apples and cinnamon. Prepare at night and enjoy in the morning.
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 1 ½ cups coconut milk (I used SoDelicious vanilla, from carton)
- 1 ½ cups water
- 2 apples (cored, peeled, diced)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
Optional for Topping
- Additional cinnamon or brown sugar
- Chopped nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc.
- Fruit such as banana slices, fresh apple, or berries
- Spray the inside of your slow cooker with oil thoroughly. This step is very important!
- Add all ingredients to the slow cooker – oats, coconut milk, water, apples, brown sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, and sea salt. Stir to combine well.
- Cook on low for 5-7 hours depending on your cooker. Some take longer and some are faster. We recommend trying a test run during the day to see how long your slow cooker takes before trying overnight.
- Serve and allow to cool. If desired, add toppings of your choice.
Be sure to use STEEL CUT OATS. These are heartier and take longer to cook so they are better for slow cooking.
Experiment with different flavors and fruits.

Creamy Blueberry, Banana and Coconut Porridge
This is really fascinating to me, because my Mum did something like this when I was a kid - only oats soaked in soya milk overnight were the basis of some really amazing . waffles.
She also put them in the slow cooker overnight and we ate those with dates and nuts. The sweet potato version would come in handy then. Sounds so delicious! Now, if it would just properly get dark and wintery a bit faster.
Really? A waffle mix. If you find that recipe do let me know! I like the sound of dates and nuts but not sure I would get the slow cooker out for porridge as it's so quick to cook, although I suppose if you have a big family it would be ideal.
This is a great healthy recipe! I can't wait to try it. Cheers
Apple cinnamon oatmeal has always been my favorite! I love that this recipe is so much better for you than the packaged oatmeal!
Oh goodness yes, you should always make it fresh. Much healthier and tastier.
You've convinced me to give overnight oats a try. Like you my favourite breakfast is a warm bowl of porridge and so I just couldn't imagine ever choosing to eat my porridge cold! But this recipe sounds delicious!
If you think people eat cereal cold, it's not really much different, but if it's cold in your house in the morning at this time of year, you may want to stick to hot porridge.
what a comforting perfect breakfast .. my son loves oatmeal and leaves early for work so this will be perfect for him
Yes, perfect and no fuss to just take it out of the fridge in the morning and tuck in.
I've been looking for a healthy breakfast recipe that my kids would love. YUM!
I hope they enjoy it Krissy. I am sure they would love it with chocolate spread or banana and peanut butter.
Sounds yummy! I have never had overnight oats before so really need to try this, just need to get some yogurt:-)
Go get some girl and try overnight oats.
Sounds delicious! I really need to try the overnight oats thing, especially now that the weather has turned to chilly enough to appreciate oatmeal in the morning.
Do give them a go but if you are feeling chilly hot porridge would be better.
I hadn't realised until I read this that overnight oats are eaten cold, I think I would prefer them warm, especially with these wonderful apple pie flavours. But I am sure I could adapt it! The cold version makes sense for hotter months though!
To be honest if you prefer then hot then just make porridge Kavey. Nearly as quick.
It's been far too long since I've had any overnight oats and it seems like the perfect time of year to add some apple and cinnamon to my next batch! Sounds like a great start to the day.
Yes it's certainly seasonal and so tasty too.

Why slow cooker overnight apple cinnamon oats?
Well, in general, overnight oats are one of my favorite things to make because it&rsquos so hands off.
The best way to utilize this is when you&rsquore having overnight guests.
Everyone wakes up at different times and instead of being concerned about, &ldquowhat&rsquos for breakfast?&rdquo if you have a batch of slow cooker overnight apple cinnamon oats ready when everyone wakes up, they can serve themselves a bowl with their coffee.
It helps the entire household out and you won&rsquot have any hangry guests or anyone rummaging through your pantry for something to tame that hunger!
Slow cooker porridge can take anywhere from 2 hours to 6 hours on low. If you leave it to cook for much longer than the 6 hours the oats might end up too soft and mushy, or start to stick to the side of the bowl.
Top Tip: To slow down the cook time, as well as prevent the porridge from sticking to the side of the slow cooker, you can cook the porridge in a large casserole dish and place that in the slow cooker. Pour a little water in the slow cooker so it comes up to around half way.
You can also use a timer to set the slow cooker off to start later, or, if your slow cooker has a keep warm feature, you can use that instead.
