This carrot cake slow cooker oatmeal tastes indulgent but it is a nutritious, fun, and filling way to start your day.

Slow cooker oatmeal is one of my favorite things. It just doesn’t get much better than throwing a bunch of stuff in the slow cooker before you go to bed (takes only a few minutes!) and waking up to a hot breakfast. Ready and waiting for you. I’ve done a plain (versatile!) version of slow cooker steel-cut oats and a pumpkin pie slow cooker oatmeal but this version might just be my favorite. It has all the familiar flavors of carrot cake: Carrots (duh), coconut, raisins and warm spices. I’m completely obsessed with the way the golden raisins puffed up and turned back into mini grapes. Or something like that. It is such a fun breakfast to eat!

This looks so good! I have yet to make oatmeal in the slow cooker!

I left a question over with the recipe, but basically, I need to know what to use if your slow cooker doesn’t have a “warm” setting, and just high and low. I’m thinking we need this for these cold, cold mornings (I’m planning on halving the recipe, since there is just the two of us). It looks yummy!

What size slow cooker do you have? I have a 6qt and even with the double batch it tends to get a bit browned around the edges when I cook it on low instead of warm. If you have a smaller crockpot it might work. I’ve done it both ways and I just stir the browned thick stuff into the soupier part in the middle and it still tastes great. Hope that helps! And I hope it turns out great! :)
