Sooo, my morning started with a little of this:
In a slow cooker:
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 3 1/2 cups water
- 1 whole apple, chopped
- allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
Cover and turn on low heat for 7-8 hours. Enjoy the mushy mess in the morning, add other toppings if you’d like.
I added 1 tbsp brown sugar and some vanilla flavoring.
Notice the apple chunks by my spoon?
If I didn’t try to get 8 hours of sleep a night, I’d try cooking them a little bit less…for some reason the slow cooker makes oats EXTRA extra gooey, which is good if you enjoy your oatmeal mushy. I, on the other hand, am partial to a slightly soupy, crunchy feel.
Anyways, enjoy your morning!
How do you like to eat oatmeal (if you do like oatmeal)? What are your favorite toppings?
