Ingredients
  

  • 1 c. steel cut oats
  • 3 c. water
  • 1 c. fresh apple cider
  • 2 medium apples cored and diced
  • T. honey preferably local
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon

  • ½ t. salt to taste
  • 1 medium apple cored and diced (to serve)
  • ½ c. pecans chopped (to serve)
  • Real maple syrup to serve

Instructions
 

  • Add oats, water, cider, apples, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt to greased or lined slow cooker crock and stir to combine.
  • 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.
  • To serve, allow to cool slightly before spooning into bowls and topping with fresh chopped apples, pecans, and some real maple syrup, if desired.

Notes

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.
