easy crock pot oatmeal: apple cinnamon

crockpot oatmeal overnight oats?
This week I decided to try making oatmeal in the crock pot and I’m so glad I did. This week has been a bit tough, currently dealing with a few personal matters so having oatmeal already cooked has made breakfast these last couple of days a breeze. I set the crock pot right before going to sleep and it was nicely cooked by the time I woke up… I guess you can call it overnight oats? ;) If you are feeding a family you’ll have to add some milk to moisten it up since the cooking process will soak up a lot of the liquid. If you’re making it for the week (which is what I did), it will keep in the fridge pretty nicely, again it will be dry up so you’ll need to add milk and water when reheating. Make sure to add other fixings as well (nuts, seeds, dried fruit… peanut butter!)

ingredients
1 cup steel-cut oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup water
1½ apple, chopped
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
2 tbsp Ideal brown sugar sweetener
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
¼ tsp salt

instructions
Include all ingredients into the crock pot. When adding the cinnamon it will tend to clump so make sure to continue to mix it until it’s well incorporated. Set it on low for 7 hours. You can add more water and/or milk so it doesn’t get too dry while it’s on the crock pot. Once done add any fixings you like! See, super easy and delicious!
