This is for all my family and friends who are living in colder climates. It’s also another way to use you slow cooker. You can send your family off with a hot breakfast with no effort.
Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal
2 2/3 cups milk, can use low fat
1 1/3 cups quick oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup finely chopped apples
1 1/2 Tbs butter, melted
1/2 cup pecans, walnuts, or almonds
Do not preheat the slow cooker. Butter or grease the inside of the crock of a 2 or 3 quart slow cooker before adding ingredients.
Add all the ingredients, except the nuts, to the crock and stir to mix evenly.
Place the crock in the heating unit and place the cover on the crock.
Turn the heat on low and allow the oatmeal to cook overnight. The oatmeal will be ready in approximately 5 to 6 hours but can cook up to 8 or 9 hours.
Stir the oatmeal before serving. Spoon into bowls and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
