Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal
A simple slow cooker apple oatmeal that cooks while you sleep.
Servings 2 to 3 servings
- 1/2 cup steel cut oats
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 to 2 pinches allspice
- 1 to 2 pinches cloves
- sweetener to taste I use about 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- Toppings for serving: granola walnuts, raisins, or pecans
The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later. Add oats, water, and applesauce. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours).
In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should be a more uniform consistency. Stir in sweetener and add spices to suit your tastes (the amounts are just guidelines). Put in bowls (or a thermos) and top with what you are in the mood for that day. Granola makes it seem more like a pie since it adds a little crunch.
Pear sauce, all fruit jam, and flavored applesauces can be used in place of the plain applesauce. It's one if the easiest ways to get creative with your morning oatmeal routine!
