CROCK POT APPLE-CINNAMON STEEL-CUT OATMEAL
I have a simple, healthy breakfast recipe for you guys today! Do you ever use your slow cooker to make oatmeal?
Well if you haven’t tried it, you should! It is a nice way to skip the hassle of making breakfast on a busy morning but still be able to put something healthy on the table. And of course with fall comes an abundance of apples, one of my favorite fall ingredients. This Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal will put your favorite apples to good use.
It is not only easy, but makes a nice bit batch of oatmeal to feed your whole family. You can also keep the leftovers for during the week, which is always a bonus in my book. This
With this Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal you can add additional garnishes to your oatmeal depending on your families likes. Sometimes I sprinkle chia seeds and a drizzle of honey on the oatmeal, other days I add some dried fruit and a little extra almond milk. It is nice to mix things up and try new combinations.
With the health ingredients of apples, oats and flax seed you will feel full and know that you gave your body the energy it needs for the day.
Two things to mention before sharing the recipe:
You can store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer. To reheat the oatmeal put in the microwave on high for 1 minute- stir- then an additional 1 minute. I added a little bit of milk and mixed it before microwaving.
The original recipe called for the oats to be cooked in the slow cooker for 7 hours on low but after 5 hours I noticed that they were looking brown around the edges which was my cue that they were done. My suggestion is to make this recipe during the day when you can watch them to see how they are cooking. Then after that you will know the cooking time and can set it up to cook during work or as you sleep.
