This recipe is SO easy! Throw it in the crockpot before bed and wake up to your house smelling incredible and breakfast hot and ready! It also stores great in the fridge - make this on Sunday night and have your breakfast for the week all done!
2 Cups Steel-cut Oats
4 Cups Water
5 Cups Skim Milk (may use Almond or Coconut milk)
1 Large Honeycrisp Apple - skinned, cored and diced
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Oil the crockpot VERY WELL. Otherwise you'll be soaking it for a few days after. I rub it down with coconut oil. Combine all the ingredients and mix well - the apples will float. Cook on Low for 8-9 hours, stirring a few times before bed but no need to stir overnight, just stir again in the morning.
: In addition to the cinnamon, I added in Apple Pie spice. The recipe itself doesn't call for any sweetener, but in the morning feel free to add in some Agave or other sweetener you like to suit your taste. This can cook up to 10 hours, after that it starts to get really clumpy, so I would transfer it to a mason jar or other containers after you eat. The recipe calls for Honeycrisp but I used Fuji apples and it came out fine. I also used 2 apples instead of one.
