Crockpot Steel Cut Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Crockpot Steel Cut Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal – This is an AWESOME breakfast dish! Put it together the night before and
by morning you’ll have deliciousness in a bowl! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a hot, yummy breakfast waiting for everyone when they wake up? Well, this Crock Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal is the answer to your prayers. And better yet, it is Apple Cinnamon flavored! Yum!

Are you a little leery of making oats in your slow cooker because it runs a little hot? Never fear! You can make your crock into a double broiler easy peasy! So you can make those steel cut oats in your crock pot without a care in the world! All you have to do is put a glass bowl inside your crock pot and add water around the bowl until it is halfway up the side of the bowl (it is super important to make sure it goes halfway up the side of the bowl…you don’t want water boiling over into your delicious oatmeal). You also want to make sure you use Steel Cut Oats…NOT Old Fashion Oats. There is a big ol’ difference when it comes to cooking times. Steel cut oats are made for an overnight stay in the crock pot, old fashion oats are not.
