Slow Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal

This oatmeal reminds me off walking into one of those fudge shops on vacation where you are surrounded by those dipped apples on sticks.

They are covered with red candy coating, caramel, chocolate, white chocolate, even flavored coatings that look vaguely like chocolate but taste like peanut butter.

Some of them are even double dipped and this one is what I think a white chocolate peanut butter apple would taste like. Only not on a stick…and…well… in oatmeal.

Most white chocolate is not vegan, but Peanut Butter and Co. White Chocolate Wonderful is, and is my favorite way to eat it.

Slow Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal

Serves: 2 to 3

**This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that's 1½ to 2 quarts
Ingredients
  • ½ cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 cups Unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter and Co. White Chocolate Wonderful (or plain peanut or almond butter)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • sweetener if needed - I did not add any since the peanut butter I used is sweetened.
Instructions
The night before:
  1. Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later. Add everything to the crock.
  2. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours).
In the morning:
  1. Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should become a more uniform consistency.
  2. Top with extra chopped apple and/or peanuts if desired.

      Going to prep this tonight and try without oiling the crock since the PB has natural oils in it already. Of course I already plan to soak it the full day after :) but I hope to cut down on a step/ingredient.

      Hi Michelle, oops my reply to Kathy ended up nested in a reply to you, I clicked the wrong spot :) But maybe I can chime in anyway–larger crocks work but it would be a good idea to increase the recipe proportionally to avoid the food getting too hot. A thin layer of oatmeal could pretty easily dry out and possibly crust up a bit. But making more will solve that. I bought the smallest crock I could find (1.5L) and even with one recipe from here the top is slightly dry, but I stir it down before serving and the top layer ‘melts’ right in. Good luck!
