Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal — Crock Pot/Slow Cooker Recipe

 

 

Steel-cut oats can be made on the stove in about 30-40 minutes; however, that doesn’t always turn out well for us!  They are so easy to make in the slow cooker.  They are great for breakfast and even a light dinner!  Steel-cut oats are a great source of vitamins, protein, fiber and more.  They take longer to cook than rolled oats, but many people prefer their sweet, nutty taste.

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples, peeled or unpeeled,  cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1-1/2 cups milk (options: low-fat milk or almond milk)
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional garnishes: chopped nuts, raisins, additional milk or cream

Serves: 4-6

Do this:

Coat inside of slow cooker with cooking spray.

Add all ingredients (except optional toppings) to slow cooker.

Stir, cover, and cook on low for 5-6 hours (slow cooker times can vary).

Extras:

Spoon oatmeal into bowls; add optional toppings, if desired.

Simple and healthy!  Don’t over sweeten.  Steel-cut oats are good with minimal sugar — they don’t need to be sweet like a dessert.

Feeding your family a warm healthy breakfast doesn’t have to keep you in the kitchen all morning!  You can make this while you sleep (using a slow cooker with a timer or make it when you won’t be sleeping more than 5-6 hours).

Also, it makes a great light and healthy dinner and is a very inexpensive meal –  Enjoy!
