Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Recipe
Cinnamon Apples Ingredients
- Brown Sugar
- White Sugar
- Brown sugar
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your apple oatmeal cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
Make sure you spray your crockpot slow cooker with non-stick spray before putting in the apples. This will make clean up a lot easier.
You will want to stir the oatmeal mixture at least once while it is cooking. This will help make sure if you have a hot spot on your crockpot that the apples and oatmeal do not burn in that spot. I have a hot spot on my crockpot that cooks a lot higher than any other area of the slow cooker. If I don't stir ingredients I end up with a small section of burnt oatmeal.
You can serve this with milk or cream if you like to add it to your oatmeal. You can also make this a dessert and top it with oatmeal. It is a sweet delicious cinnamon apple oatmeal recipe.
For even more flavor you can sprinkle dried fruit on top of your oatmeal.
This breakfast recipe does take 4 hours to cook so you will want to plan for cooking time. A hot bowl of oatmeal is such a great filling way to start the day. The apples are tender and taste amazing.
If you want a sweeter flavor you can add in maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
This baked oatmeal tastes amazing after slow cooking all morning. One more reminder though to make sure you are stirring occasionally to combine the ingredients and keep them moving around your slow cooker.
