Some mornings it’s hard getting everything together and the kids on the bus at the right time.
That’s why I love this recipe for crock pot oatmeal.
You put everything together the night before and when you wake up in the morning, breakfast is ready!
Crock Pot Oatmeal
- 2 apples, sliced
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch of salt ( I omitted this)
- 2 cups of oatmeal
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 cups of water
Layer the first 4 ingredients in the bottom of the crock pot that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Now, add the oatmeal, milk and water.
DO NOT STIR!
Cook overnight on LOW for 8 to 9 hours. I used an older crock pot that cooks slow.
Some of the newer crock pots cook way too fast in my opinion.
I put everything together and plugged in my crock pot at 11:00 at night.
When I came down to my kitchen at 6:00 the next morning my oatmeal was done.
Oatmeal looking and smelling delicious…
Breakfast is ready…
The kitchen smelled liked heaven and it was so nice to wake up to a delicious WARM breakfast all ready for me.
I put my crock pot on the “Keep Warm” setting until I was ready to eat.
The oatmeal came out more like a baked oatmeal, but so YUMMY.
This recipe does make a good amount of oatmeal, which was way too much for me to eat for one breakfast.
I put the leftovers in a plastic container and enjoyed the oatmeal over the next few days for breakfast.
The oatmeal heats up beautifully in the microwave.
I hope you’ll enjoy this delicious breakfast.
