Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats


Who wouldn’t love waking up in the morning not only to a pleasant aroma coming from the kitchen but knowing breakfast is already waiting for you.  All you have to do is roll out of bed and head down those steps. Next grab a bowl and have some nice warm oatmeal!  

This oatmeal recipe I tried this week and it is simple and delicious. It uses my favorite way of cooking – the crock pot.  You prepare everything the night before and let it cook while you are sleeping!

When preparing this dish you have to make sure you use STEEL CUT OATS rather than regular oatmeal. 

Ingredients…

3 cups Steel Cut Oats
3 Cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
10 cups water (use more if you want a more liquid texture)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons cinnamon
2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions…

1.  Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray (very important otherwise you will need a chisel and hammer to get  your pot clean)
2.  Put all the ingredients into your slow cooker and cook overnight on low for approximately 8 hours
3When you wake in the morning the oatmeal will need a good stir!
 
After stirring this is what it looked like!


Makes approximately 12 servings.

Enjoy!
