Apple Banana Nut Overnight Crock Pot Oatmeal


Today is Sunday, and Sunday means church. Each Sunday morning try to get up extra early, take a shower, and get ready before the babes get up. Like most of my days, it begins the night before.

I’ve been working my way through Homemaking Ministries’ Free eCourse- Finding Joy in Your Home: Essential Habits for Christian Homemakers. One of the things she mentions in her videos is getting breakfast ready the night before. I usually have a plan for breakfast, but as far as it being ready in the morning- well I’ve never been that good.

Jamie specifically mentions overnight crock pot oatmeal. I started looking around on the web for a good recipe to try but each one I looked at had something I didn’t like about it. So I decided to make up my own and hope for the best. I am super excited to say that it turned out DELICIOUS!!!! So delicious that I need to share it with you.

I seriously plan to start making this at least twice a week.

Apple Banana Nut Overnight Crock Pot Oatmeal


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter


Put everything in the pot, give it a stir, and cook on WARM for 7-8 hours. Seriously, it’s that easy.

This made enough for myself and my five kids to eat breakfast and still have some leftovers (about another two servings.)

A few notes about what I did-

  1. I used a frozen banana that I microwaved for 30 seconds to soften
  2. Spray coconut (or any other) oil on the crock walls to prevent sticking
  3. I cooked it on WARM in my 4.5 quart crock pot from 9 pm until 6 am and it came out PERFECT

I’ve made a cute printable of the yummy recipe just for you! Just click here to download.

*NOTE- On the printable I made a mistake and put from 9 pm to 6 pm instead of 6 AM, Please don’t cook your oatmeal that long!!*

I hope you and your family enjoy this as much as we did!!
