1. Crockpot Breakfast Casserole

If you want a sure-fire way to energize yourself in the morning, you can’t go wrong with this breakfast casserole. To say that this is loaded is an understatement.

Eggs, hash browns, bacon, and cheese are the stars of this dish. It’s rich, creamy, cheesy, and smoky, all in one bite. It’s the true breakfast of champions.

2. Steel-Cut Oats 

This recipe is oatmeal for the lazy. It’s not just any kind of oatmeal, though!

Steel-cut oats are less processed, making for oatmeal that’s nuttier, chewier, and overall more delicious. It’s more nutritious, to boot.

Normally, cooking steel-cut oats require babysitting. But with the Crockpot, you can free yourself of all that nonsense!

Just put the ingredients in the pot, get some sleep, and wake up to the heavenly scent of freshly-cooked oatmeal.

3. Crockpot Hash Brown Casserole

Potatoes have a special place in my heart. I love how you can eat them regardless of the time of day.

For breakfast, I love hash brown casserole. Aside from shredded tots, this spud-tastic dish is also filled with beaten eggs, ham, and cheese. It’s breakfast for the win!

4. Crockpot Breakfast Quinoa 

Quinoa is a superfood that will make your heart and tummy full and happy.

Say hello to quinoa made sweet with honey and creamy with coconut milk.

Topped with your favorite fruits and berries, it’s a healthy and hearty breakfast that will surely get you pumped in the AM.

5. Crockpot Breakfast Potatoes 

Here’s another dish for my fellow tater lovers. This breakfast features the humble potato in all its fluffy glory.

Seasoned with peppers and onions, these potatoes are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, and amazing in every bite. 

Thanks to the Crockpot, you can cook this dish perfectly every time without supervision. 

6. Crockpot French Toast Casserole

Celebrate the success of your week by indulging yourself in a French toast casserole!

This sinful breakfast is the perfect start to the perfect weekend. So what if it’s 100,000 calories? You know you deserve a little pampering.

Unlike the usual French toast, this easy casserole version is ten times easier to make. Plus, it can feed a crowd!

So as tempting as it is to have it all to yourself, you’ll also have the option to share.

7. Crockpot Carrot Cake Oatmeal

If you’re craving a slice of carrot cake but are trying to limit your sugar intake, this recipe is exactly what you’ll need.

This isn’t your regular boring oatmeal. This one is made creamier with almond and coconut milk.

8. Slow Cooker Mocha 

Love the combination of coffee and chocolate? Well, you have to try this slow cooker mocha.

This morning beverage is sweet, decadent, and chocolatey. More importantly, it will give you the early morning boost you so desperately need!

There’s no need to go to Starbucks to enjoy a hot cup of mocha, either. With a few ingredients and the slow cooker, you’re good to go.

9. Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Here’s another delicious take on classic oatmeal. If you can’t get enough of fall flavors, this recipe is a must-try.

Steel-cut oats + pureed pumpkin + pumpkin spice + cinnamon + vanilla = pure joy.

The combination of hearty oats and warming spices is truly sublime. Talk about comfort in a bowl!

10. Giant Pancake 

Why make a dozen pancakes when you can make one instead? Cut the cooking time in half by making this giant pancake!

No more flipping and standing by the stove for hours! With this recipe, you’ll get the goodness of tender and fluffy flapjacks minus the work. 

Dress it up with your favorite toppings, slice it like pie, and enjoy!

11. Slow Cooker Apple Crisp 

Apple crisp is a delicious and cozy autumn dessert. Fall spices are present both in the apple filling and the crumble topping.

One spoonful of this treat is like a warm embrace from your mom. 

With this recipe, you need not be as good of a baker as your mom to pull off a delectable apple crisp.

With the help of the Crockpot, you can easily whip up this tasty dessert with a crisp and buttery topping!

12. Slow Cooker Applesauce

Speaking of fall, here’s another recipe that will remind you of the beauty of the season.

Whether you use it as a dessert topping, a bread spread, or a sauce, this applesauce will not disappoint.

With this easy and affordable recipe, you can say goodbye to store-bought.

13. Slow Cooker Chai Tea Latte 

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could make your own chai tea latte at home?

The formula is simple: tea leaves, milk, fall spices, and honey. Let the flavors marry in the Crockpot and voila! 

14. Slow Cooker Peach Crisp

I can’t say no to dessert for breakfast. Especially when peaches are involved!

Besides apples, you can also make the classic crisp with peaches. It’s crisp and crumbly on top, soft and tender in the center, and delicious all throughout.

The flavor and texture combination sure hits the spot!

I know it’s not ideal to eat ice cream for breakfast, but with this dish, you should make an exception.

15. Crockpot Banana Bread 

There’s nothing like a sweet and tender slice of banana bread to start your day. And yes, you can make one in the slow cooker, too!

There’s nothing this handy equipment can’t do.

This banana bread is just as wonderfully sweet, moist, and packed with flavor as one that’s baked in the oven.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

16. Slow Cooker Mini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

These tiny bites are huge in flavor! Chewy, chocolatey, and addictive: these are the perfect words to describe these mini-chocolate chip muffins.

The best part is they require no supervision at all. Just pop the ingredients in the Crockpot and forget about it for a couple of hours.

By the time you’re finished with your morning ritual, the muffins will be ready and waiting.

17. Crockpot Granola

Why buy granola when you can make it yourself? This recipe yields perfectly crunchy and flavorful granola with minimal effort.

Combining the goodness of oats, coconut, nuts, oats, seeds, and honey, this granola has a wonderful balance of flavors and textures. 

The best part is that you get to pick your choice of granola ingredients.

If you make it yourself, you won’t have to pull out ingredients you don’t like in a store-bought granola.

18. Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole

There’s nothing like waking up the scent of freshly-baked cinnamon rolls. Starting your day with these sticky, ooey-gooey buns is the best!

Between your work and the kids, though, who has the time to bake bread?

With this recipe, you’ll get to enjoy the goodness of a classic cinnamon roll, but in casserole form.

Cooking cinnamon roll in a slow cooker isn’t only a thousand times easier.

It also crisps up the edges, adding a wonderful contrast to the soft and gooey center. 

19. Crockpot Blueberry French Toast

Blueberry French toast is yet another indulgent breakfast that will have your self-control thrown out the window. 

I don’t need to tell you how delicious this French toast is. We all know it’s a winner. But did you know that you can make it with much less effort? 

Instead of pan-frying each piece of bread in the skillet, just let the Crockpot do its thing.

Trust that it will yield the same level of goodness as any French toast you’ve had.

20. Crockpot Rice Pudding 

This rich and creamy rice-based dish is a popular breakfast in Nordic countries, and in my household as well.

It’s my go-to dish when I’m craving something sweet in the morning, but also want to be energized for the day ahead. 

You can enjoy rice pudding as is, but you can also try it with brown sugar and cinnamon.

This multi-grain cereal is super healthy, super hearty, and super delicious. It’s a nourishing breakfast that will get you all pumped for the day!

It sounds bland, but you can easily give it more flavor by adding dried fruits, cinnamon, honey, or jam.

22. Crockpot Hot Chocolate 

Just the thought of a cup of hot chocolate gives me so much joy. Others call it hot cocoa, but to me, it will always be happiness in a cup.

It’s perfect for cold winter mornings, but it’s so good I wouldn’t mind drinking it even on a hot day!

This Crockpot recipe makes the richest, most decadent hot chocolate! No hot chocolate packet can match its deliciousness.

23. Mexican Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Start your Taco Tuesday early! This casserole has all your favorite Tex-Mex ingredients in one amazing dish.

I’m talking sausage, hash browns, and loads of cheese bound together by creamy eggs.

Just imagine devouring all that deliciousness at 7 o’clock in the morning! Who says fiestas only take place during lunch and dinner?

24. Slow Cooker Omelette 

Omelettes sound like such a boring dish, but it’s actually quite the opposite.

If you fill them with contrasting flavors and textures, omelette can be an awesome start to your day.

This recipe transforms the simple scrambled egg by adding milk, cheese, broccoli, bell peppers, and onions.

Flavored with various herbs and seasonings, you’ve never had omelette this good before.

25. Crockpot Sticky Buns

I usually hate eating sticky things with my hands, but sticky buns are an exception. I will never say no to this finger-licking, lip-smacking treat!

With a simple blend of spiced brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans, you can transform basic biscuit rolls into stunning breakfast/dessert.

Fried apples in the slow cooker? I’m listening.

If you’re obsessed with fall flavors, you will fall in love with this recipe. It yields the most delicious fried apples that you can enjoy any time of the year! 

Brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, lemon juice, and the slow cooker make apples irresistible.

It makes a fantastic topping to pancakes, waffles, and even meat dishes! I like it best on its own with a spoon.

I know making bread from scratch is such a time-consuming, tedious process. But if you’re making it with a slow cooker, it won’t be as complicated.

Plus, this recipe will hold your hand every step of the way.

The result? Ridiculously soft and moist bread with a crisp crust!

28. Slow Cooker Grits 

There’s nothing like a bowl of rich and creamy grits to warm your body up on a rainy morning.
