Has it been a long weekend? How about a nutritious breakfast to change things up from the usually cereal before school? My family loves oatmeal just about anyway, besides Mr.Picky who I have yet to convert. This oatmeal has to be one of the easiest recipes you can follow and it will not fail you. You will wake up to a warm breakfast, with a wonderful aroma floating through the air.
This oatmeal is completely sweetened and just needs a little cream or milk to finish off the bowl. I am sure you can add raisins as well. The leftover are great in my Breakfast Oatmeal Muffin recipe.
Overnight Apple Oatmeal:
- 2-3 apples, peeled and cubed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups old fashion oatmeal
- 4 cups water
Place ingredients in the slow cooker in the order listed. DO NOT stir.
Turn your slow cooker to low and cook 8 hours. My slow cooker runs warm so I cook it on high for 1 hour and the turn it to keep low for probably about 9-10 hours.
