Servings 6 servings


  • 1 cup steel cut oats (Not instant or rolled oats—those cook a lot faster and turn to mush!)
  • 3 1/2 cups milk (Can use any kind, including soy or almond)
  • 1-2 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs cinnamon


  • Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker, stirring to evenly distribute and help the sugar dissolve.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. If your slow cooker runs hot, set it to warm instead.
  • Serve on it's own, or topped with garnishes like raisins, fresh fruit slices, or roasted nuts.


Don't be afraid to make a big batch! Leftovers freeze well and make great future breakfasts.
