Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oats

It is so nice to throw everything in the slow cooker at night and wake up to your house smelling delicious and breakfast ready to serve!!

1 1/2 cups steel cut oats
2 cups water*
1 cup milk*
2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ground flax
2 TB butter, cut into cubes
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger

LINE OR GREASE your slow cooker.....very important, if you dont you will spend all the morning prep time you saved scrubbing your crock.

Place all the ingredients in the slow cooker and give it a good stir. Turn on to low and go to bed LOL...

In the morning(6-7 hours cook time) open it up, give it a stir and serve.

Toppings as desired.
a touch more brown sugar
splash of milk
my kids added blueberries and a scoop of peanut butter.

*You can play with your liquid ratios for a more or less "creamy" texture.

Easy to double if you have a large crock pot and it freezes really well. You can divide it into individual portions or in 1 dish. To reheat place in microwave safe bowl. Add a bit of milk and microwave in 1 minute increments , stirring often until hot.
