Favorite Slow Cooked Almond Raisin Oatmeal

Favorite Slow Cooked Almond Raisin Oatmeal recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Warm soft raisins and almonds, brown sugar and soft oats cook slowly to create a warm muesli-like breakfast cereal. My kids and I are completely hooked on crockpot oatmeal. I've been making it at least twice a week for the past few months. (I swear I won't post another crockpot oatmeal recipe for at least a month!)

This is actually an oatmeal that I crave. I can hardly believe that I wrote that. I've always enjoyed oatmeal, but I rarely crave it. This variation makes me grin ever single time that I make it. There has never been a single bite leftover. My kids would eat multiple bowls of this if I let them.

Slow Cooked Almond Raisin Oatmeal
Yield: 4-5 servings
(printable recipe)

2 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups milk

Place all dry ingredients in the crockpot and stir to mix. Add the milk, stir again and cover with the lid. Cook on HIGH for 1 hour or on LOW for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until desired consistency. The oatmeal is ready to eat when it is warm.

* I used a 2 quart crockpot for this recipe, but it would work fine in a larger one. Just watch the oatmeal and see if it is cooking more quickly than the recipe describes.

  2. Oatmeal and raisins is one of my favourite breakfasts, I usually add coconut. I've just had breakfast looking at the photo makes me want to eat again!

  3. You make this sound so tempting! I love raisins and would really like to try it. However, the rest of my family isn't so big on raisins. I guess that would leave more for me!

  4. I feel such a sense of kinship with your are always posting exactly what I feel like eating or making. I guess I fall on the slightly more lazy end of this idea, though. Ive been trying to perfect the overnight crockpot oatmeal! Yours looks so good, though, I will just have to get up early and try it.
