  • Slow cooker – I use my slow cooker at least once a week, if not more, and I don’t know what I’d do without it.  I recommend getting one big enough to feed your family and if you aren’t home during the day one with a timer is a must.
  • Slow Cooker Liners – for easy cleanup these are a must, the only downside is cooking in plastic, you need to make the decision that is best for you.

Slow Cooker Apple-Cinnamon Oats Directions:

  1. Add oats, water, cider, apples, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt to greased or lined slow cooker crock and stir to combine.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Actual cooking time will vary depending on your slow cooker, so check for doneness after 5 hours and adjust cooking time accordingly.
  3. To serve, allow to cool slightly before spooning into bowls and topping with fresh chopped apples, pecans, and some real maple syrup, if desired.

Tips:

  • Do not substitute any other type of oats for this recipe. Cooking times are based on using steel cut oats only.
  • It very important to either line or heavily grease the sides of your slow cooker crock before preparing this recipe. If you skip this step, the oats will stick to the sides and will be very difficult to remove.
