I have to say that I really love when the fall weather hits so I can break out all my tummy-warming recipes! My family LOVES oatmeal, but I sometimes get a little bored with it, so I mixed it up by doing an Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal in my Crock Pot. It was SO delicious and made me love steel cut oats even more!
Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
(Recipe and photos by Paula from The REAL Housewives of Riverton)
2 cups uncooked steel cut oats
3 cups milk
2 1/2 cups water
3-4 Apples – peeled, cored and chopped. (about 5 cups)
3 1/2 tablespoons of butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Spray the inside of a 6 quart crock pot with non stick spray or use a crock pot liner. Combine steel cut oats, milk, water, butter, and apples in the crock pot. In small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, mix together. Sprinkle over the top of the oatmeal mixture in crock pot. Stir to mix in, cook on low for 7-8 hours. To keep the edges and bottom of your oatmeal from getting overdone. Set your crock pot to warm after 7 hours.
My family of 6 (2 adults, 11 year old, 6 year old, 3 year old and 9 month old) polished this entire batch off! Seriously we loved it so much! And my boys loved the crunchy pieces from the sides of the crock pot. If you have a smaller family, or aren’t oatmeal lovers like we are you can half the recipe. Feel free to add more toppings, raisins, walnuts, more butter, milk, or brown sugar…whatever you love in your oatmeal! 🙂 If you have any leftover, it can be stored in the fridge and reheated for more delicious breakfasts! Enjoy!
