Here's yet another recipe for slow-cooker steel cut oats. We've already been through Pumpkin, Peaches and Cream, Eggnog, and Dulce de Leche. And just yesterday, I made one using dried blueberries, which I will post soon! This one was easy and tasty, and thanks to the use of apple juice, no extra sugar was needed when we ate this for breakfast! A Cooking Friend first mentioned that she made an apple version based on the Peaches and Cream version, and I mentally bookmarked it to make soon. I was browsing the Internet last week though, and saw that Closet Cooking had an apple version. It looked perfect, so I tried it as soon as I could.
Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal
adapted from Closet Cooking
1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups apple juice or apple cider (or water)
2 cups milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
2 small apples, peeled, cored and cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg, grated
walnuts, chopped (optional)
milk to taste (optional)
1. Place the steel cut oats, apple juice or water, almond milk, apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and in a slow cooker and set it to cook on low for 4 hours.
2. Stir the oatmeal and serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for serving later. When serving, add walnuts and milk if desired.
