Crock Pot Oatmeal with Spiced Apples

Joan Hunt


This is our favorite oatmeal it tastes like apple pie. The steel cut oats have a more chewy texture to them and are a little heartier than the rolled oats. Keeping you full longer so you won't snack between breakfast and lunch.

Don't substitute rolled oats or quick cooking oats here in this recipe (they will turn to mush).
