Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

We love this recipe!So easy for busy mornings. You can not allow it to overcook! 7 hours and then unplug or turn off the slow cooker. I found the recipe from The Yummy Life. You also have to use steel cut oats. Don't try this with rolled oats or it will be a mushy mess.
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2-1/2 to 3 cups chopped)
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons butter, cut into 5-6 pieces (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
Coat inside of 3-1/2 quart (or larger) slow cooker with cooking spray. Stir, cover, and cook on low for 7 hours.  We love to eat it drizzled with maple syrup.
