We are not ones to cook a big breakfast in our house, so what we usually have is something very easy or a smoothie. This is a very easy, filling, and healthy breakfast. My husband especially loves this one because it is so hearty. Be sure not to substitute for any other kind of oatmeal. ONLY STEEL CUT OATMEAL will do.

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Crockpot Oatmeal

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together chopped apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl. When apples are evenly coated, put the mixture into the crock pot.
  3. Add water, milk, butter, vanilla, oats and the raisins (optional). If I am using walnuts or pecans, I add them at this time. If using almonds, wait until you are almost ready to serve. (All nuts are optional.) Stir well.
  4. Put the lid on your crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours or overnight. If using almonds, I add them as soon as I get up and then let cook while I get the coffee made.
  5. You may sprinkle the top of the oatmeal with more nuts and brown sugar before serving. This is delish. Hope you enjoy!
