Crockpot Oatmeal, yes I cook

16 May

We’ve been wanting to try this one out for a while.  I love oatmeal and I love a good crockpot so the two together just seems natural.  Oh, and it’s low fat and healthy too?  Fantastic.  I studied a few variations of this recipe and worked with what we had.  We got some bad news last night so this was definitely a good comfort food for this morning.

Chop up two apples (some recipes suggest peeling them, but I left it on)

You’ll need to grease the crockpot or it will stick like silly glue the next morning.

Add 1 1/2 cup water and 1 1/2 cup milk (I substitued Almond milk)

Sprinkle some cinnamon.

Set on low and leave overnight for roughly 7 hours

In the morning you are greeted with a wonderful smell!

I crushed up some almonds to throw on top for a crunchy treat.

    Delicious honey(s) and inspiring! Pretty smart to cook up oatmeal instead of going on a bender over bad news. Whatta gal and guy.
