Warm up to a hearty and delicious bowl of hot Crock-Pot Banana Bread Oatmeal. The perfect breakfast for a cold morning!
Slow Cooker Banana Bread Oatmeal
Colder weather makes me want to eat warm food for breakfast. Something about waking up and putting your bare foot on that cold floor and walking into the kitchen and starting the Keurig for that first cup of coffee and fixing a bowl of hot breakfast food from the crock-pot.
I love oatmeal. It is my all time favorite hot breakfast food. I like it plain with a little brown sugar and some milk in it, apple pieces and some cinnamon, and even with just maple syrup in it.
I decided it was time to try a few recipes for my favorite breakfast food in the crock-pot. Something that I could start before bed, and eat when I got up.
This is a great recipe to use up those bananas that are a little too ripe to eat, but you hate to throw them out. You know the ones with the brown spots that kids say are too ripe to eat.
Mix all the ingredients in the crock-pot, turn it on and wait for the oatmeal to be done.
I topped mine with some chopped nuts and a few slices of fresh bananas. Some fresh coconut, a few chocolate chips or even some added fresh blueberries would make a great added topping too!

This banana bread oatmeal would be great for breakfast.
Hi…..can you use the quick cook steel oats? Also would this work with the regular old fashion oats? Thanks for you help.
Mary Powers says
Looks amazing. Could Old Fashioned Oats be used instead of steel cut oats?
Crock-Pot Ladies says
Hi Mary, this recipe was specifically tested using steel cut oats because of the long cooking time. However you can use regular old fashioned oats but you would need to cook it for less time. Otherwise, it will overcook and be mushy.
I’m curious if you can use a liner in the slow cooker when making this? I’m never sure with liquidy stuff like this. 🙂
Crock-Pot Ladies says
Hi Amy, yes you can use a slow cooker liner for this recipe and just about any recipe really. I personally like to use them for anything I think may be hard to clean. Oatmeal is good example!
