Apple & Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oats

To start my Celebration Fall I wanted to share my favorite Oatmeal Recipe.  Apple & Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oats made in the Crock Pot.

Living in Wisconsin Fall means cold nights and chilly mornings.  Perfect for a warm bowl of oatmeal.

Delicious and healthy.

Apples and Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal 
made in the Crock Pot

1 1/2 Cup of Water
1 Cup of 2%  Milk
1 Cup of Steel-Cut Oats
3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon of Flax Seeds
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
2 Apples diced

VERY IMPORTANT ...spray your crock-pot with a non-stick spray or give it a coat of butter. Prevents oatmeal from sticking to your crock-pot.

Add all ingredients to the crock-pot and cook on low for 7 hours. SMELLS DELICIOUS!

Approx. 5 servings at 1 cup each.  I place my oatmeal in reusable containers - put them in the fridge then each morning I microwave me a bowl of tasty oatmeal.

I calculate about 200 calories per serving - depending on what you top your oatmeal with.  Mine I always top with sliced almonds.

  1. This looks so amazingly delicious. I would feel really good knowing I was sending my kids off to school with something this warming in their tummies!
