Quaker Oats Steel-Cut Oatmeal made in the Crock Pot

Apples & Raisin Quaker Steel-Cut Oatmeal 
made in the Crock Pot

1 1/2 Cup of Water

1 Cup of 2%  Milk
1 Cup of Quaker Steel-Cut Oat
3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar

1 Tablespoon of Flax Seeds
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1 Cup of Raisins
2 Apples diced

VERY IMPORTANT ...spray your crock-pot with a non-stick spray or give it a coat of butter. Prevents oatmeal from sticking to your crock-pot.

Mix all ingredients in your crock pot.  Cook on low for about 7 hours. I then place cooled oatmeal in a container. I store the container in the fridge and each morning I portion out a serving and heat my oatmeal in the microwave.  Hot tasty oatmeal in 2 minutes. 

Why do I use Quaker Oats?

For over 138 years they have been the leaders in healthy cereal.  They were the first cereal to trademark and register for a patent in 1877. In 1922 Quaker Oats introduced Quaker Quick Oats one of the first convenience foods.  Then in 1966 they introduced Quaker Instant Oatmeal - followed by the first flavored instant oatmeal that hit the market in 1970.   In 1997 oatmeal was the first specific food the FDA approved the first health claim  – oatmeal for heart health. Heart healthy oatmeal is a perfect way to start my day. 

Quaker Oats says quality and caring to me!  A name I can TRUST for my family!
This post is not a is my real life! I received nothing from Quaker Oats to write this post or to use their product in my recipe. I use Quaker Oats because it is my oatmeal of choice!  Give it a try!


  1. I bet this is good on a cold day! I love you put apples in it.

  2. This sounds fabulous! We have no school on Monday morning and I think a batch of this sounds perfect! We're having such cold weather lately. Thanks for sharing, especially the tip about using a non-stick spray!

  3. I love Quaker Oats! Love it around here.

  4. I love this idea. I love oatmeal, but when I get up in the morning I don't want to deal with preparing anything. This sounds fantastic. I'm going to print out the recipe now.

  5. I like steel cut oatmeal much better than "regular" oatmeal but it takes so long to cook in the morning.. I like the idea of being able to put this on at night and having it hot and ready in the morning.

  6. I never thought to put this in the crock pot. That is so neat. My hubby would like this.

  7. I always wanted to try a batch in the crock pot but never got around to it. Thanks for reminding me and for sharing a great recipe. We only do Quaker Oats in our family! :)

  8. I love steel cut oats but often don't have them because I don't have the time or patience in the morning to make them. Making them in the crockpot is genius!
