Crockpot oatmeal breakfast

Crockpot Oatmeal Breakfast

Want breakfast tomorrow without lifting a finger?

Place 2 sliced apples, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, pinch salt in the bottom of the crock pot.
Pour in 2 cups of steel cut oatmeal, 2 cups of milk and 2 cups water.
Do NOT stir.
Cook overnight for 8 - 9 hours on low.

Comments: try cooking in the evening and watching it so it doesn’t burn. Then refrigerate and warm up for breakfast.

I like to offer additional ingredients when I serve it such as craisins, raisins, dried apricots, walnuts, bananas, more brown sugar and cinnamon. Yummmm.

Note:It is important to use Steel cut oats not regular oatmeal. Steel cut oats, sometimes labeled "Irish oatmeal," look like small pebbles. They are toasted oat groats—the oat kernel that has been removed from the husk that have been cut in 2 or 3 pieces.
