Slow Cooker Saturday: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
Slow Cooker Saturday. Yum. Yum. I have another great Slow Cooker Recipe for you.
School is officially out. We can be a little more leisurely in the morning. A fact for which I am super duper excited.
Breakfasts are a bit of a battle at our house. Mostly because pancakes are the only thing that is unanimously agreed upon and I would rather not make them every morning.
Enter a breakfast that I can start the night before. Then make that breakfast appleicious and all cinnamontastic. Oh and did I mention that it is a healthy and filling oatmeal breakfast as well.
Kiddos happily devoured it all while snugly in their jammies.
Now that I know I can make breakfast in a slow cooker...well that might just be happening a lot more.
There will be far less squabbling at breakfast table now...well at least less squabbling about the food...hahaha...
Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
adapted from Baked by Rachel
3 apples, cored and cut into 1/2" cubes
1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup water
1 cup steel-cut oats
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
chopped pecans, garnish
Coat the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Be generous, because if you aren't then it could super stick.
Add all the ingredients, but the pecans, into the slow cooker. Stir everything together and put the lid on. Cook on low for 7 hours.
Serve hot topped with the pecans.
