All of the flavours of apple pie in an over night slow cooker steal cut oatmeal for breakfast
– Total Time: 4 hours 10 minutes Servings: 4.
– 1 cup steel cut oats.
– 2 cups water or apple juice or apple cider.
– 2 cups milk (or 2 more cups water).
– 2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into bite sized pieces.
– 1/4 cup brown sugar.
– 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
– 1 dash nutmeg, grated.
– 1/4 cup raisins (optional).
– 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional).
Step 2: Mix the oatmeal up, optionally adding milk to bring it to the desired consistency and sweetener to bring it to the desired sweetness and serve topped with any desired toppings.
Note : This works best overnight if you have a slow cooker that either has a timer for a delayed start or one that has a timer to switch from low to keep warm mode after the 4 hours. If you do not have these features on your slow cooker you can place the ingredients in a bowl that will fit in the slow cooker and place couple of inches of water around it so that it sits in a water bath in the slow cooker and then cook on low overnight. Option: Top with caramel sauce for a special treat! Nutrition Facts: Calories 297, Fat 8g (Saturated 2g, Trans 0), Cholesterol 10mg, Sodium 67mg, Carbs 50g (Fiber 5g, Sugars 29g), Protein 9g
