So nice to have breakfast all ready when you wake up! Peaches seem to be our favorite flavor in this oatmeal, but any fruit works. Make it your own by adding your favorite toppings like chopped walnuts, cream, additional brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, etc.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup diced fresh peaches

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place water, oats, milk, butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt into an oven-safe bowl. Place the bowl into the bottom of a slow cooker. Fill the slow cooker with water up to the water level in the oatmeal bowl. Cover the slow cooker.

Chef's Notes

Do not substitute anything for steel-cut oats; You can use half-and-half instead of milk, margarine instead of butter, and canned or frozen peaches instead of fresh; The bowl placed inside of my slow cooker prevents the drying out of the oatmeal. Not to mention it is much easier to clean the bowl. Sort of makes a double boiler.


  1. Actually 10 stars. I made it just as stated. My husband rated it his favorite. I am not always a lover of steel cut oats, but I have to agree with him. So easy! I used jarred peaches, and I did add chopped walnuts.
