Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 9 hrs
Temp Low
Yield Serves 8-10

You can top it off with blueberries, raspberries or any other fruit you might like. The steel cut oatmeal will absorb most of the liquid. It will have the consistency of really thick, creamy soup.


  • 8 Cups Milk (either 2% or whole)
  • 1 1/2 Cups STEEL CUT Oatmeal
  • 1/4 Cup Brown sugar
  • Stick of Cinnamon
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of vanilla
  • Optional: I pour in a can of evaporated OR condensed milk for an even creamier taste (condensed milk will make it very sweet).


  1. Step One

    Stir together.

  2. Step Two

    Put on low in your slow cooker overnight.

  3. Step Three

    (I usually turn it on at 10pm and by 7am the creamy, thick, sweet oatmeal is ready.)

    8 cups of milk is too much. I would use 4-6 cups of milk next time. It turned out very “soupy”.

    Has anyone tried making a half recipe?

    I made this last night! I was so happy to come downstairs and have breakfast already for me and my family. It tasted great and was very filling. I am trying this again tonight with fresh peaches in it.

    Laura, it actually saves really well! Just reheat single servings in your microwave.

  5. Laura

    How well does it save if you don’t use it all the first day?

    I like to make my oatmeal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Has anyone tried it in this recipe?

    Hey, y’all! Sorry for the confusion! I think this should read “half of a 1/2 gallon of milk.” Or in other words, 8 cups. We’ll get this fixed!!!!!

  10. Sara

    Has anyone tried this? Crockin Girls! Please clarify the amount of milk for this recipe. 1/2 gallon seems to be an awful lot!! I would like to make this but don’t want a disaster! Thank you!

    We just did a steel cut oatmeal for our Crockin’ Monday recipe. It’s from our cookbook. Check this out…there is even a video. You can add whatever you like and compare it to this recipe.

    Jenna and Nicole – Could you please clarify because I’m really confused now. I’d really like to try this recipe but don’t want to be disappointed when I open the crockpot in the a.m.

  13. Paula E.

    recipe says ONE and a HALF cups steel cut oats and HALF gallon milk. The steel cut oats do need a lot of moisture!

  14. Teresa B.

    I read it as 1/2 gal milk & 1.5 cups steel cut oats.

  15. OlieAnn S.

    steel cut oats are very different than rolled oats

  16. Deedee P.

    Just curious about the milk to oat meal ratio. Seems like a lot of milk plus canned milk on top of it. If we want thicker oatmeal should we add more oats? Thanks

  17. Joan C.

    This has to be wrong. 1/2 gallon of milk and only 1/2 cup or steel oats? Please correct this.

  18. Brenda w.

    OK so it’s a half gallon of milk & a 1/2 cup of steel cut oat meal. Just wanted to double check. Thanks
