Crockpot Oatmeal: Apple Pie Oats

September 4, 2012 at 9:00 am 1 comment

Happy Tuesday y’all 🙂 Hope your labor day weekend was AWESOME. By the time Kyle got back from his family reunion in Washington, our weekend was filled with thunderstorms–so naturally our day turned into a movie marathon.

Colby, Kyle and I sat down to watch The Lucky One. Oh yea—rom coms with my guys 🙂

Earlier this week I did a fair amount of experimenting with the crockpot. One major success:

Crockpot oatmeal! With a few extra apples, a mixture of some steel cut oats and muesli (a mixture of dried dates, raisins, rolled oats and whole grains) and a good dose of cinnamon, my crockpot became the queen of breakfast. Oats that taste like apple pie? Awh yea!

Crockpot Oatmeal: Apple Pie Oats 

  • 2 cups steel cut oats
  • 2 cups muesli
  • 6 cups water
  • 3-4 cups vanilla unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • few dashes of nutmeg
  • 2 apples, chopped (I used pink crisps)
  • 2-4 Tbsp. agave or honey

The directions are simple: dump in a crockpot, set on low and let the magic happen overnight.

I put the crockpot on at 10pm and this is what I found at 6:30am:

Gooey oats and warm cinnamon apples. The dates and raisins from the muesli has plumped up like little sweet pillows. Such a good breakfast to start the day!

And the best part? This recipe makes 12 healthy servings…208 calories each with 7g of protein! You’ll have breakfast for the week (and then some!). It’s an awesome recipe to make for big family gatherings. Or in my case, when you live with a bunch of college guys. 🙂

I hope you enjoy!

What is your go-to breakfast in the morning?

Love and apple awesomeness this Tuesday morning,

xoxo Kath
