Oh my gosh – Overnight Oatmeal in the Crockpot! Why is this something I’ve only recently discovered?! It’s super easy, totally convenient, requires no work from me in the morning, it’s healthy AND it’s delicious.
I’ve been experimenting with a bunch of different combinations and recipes and this is one I really, really like. It’s sweet and creamy and very, very filling. It’s perfect to enjoy on these cooler mornings now that the season change is coming.
- 2 TBSP butter
- 4 apples (I love Honey Crisps) pealed and chopped
- 1/2 c pack brown sugar (I use light)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
- 2 cups milk (I use 1%)
- 2 cups water
Coat your crock pot with a bit of non-stick spray or a little extra butter to prevent sticking
Cut the butter into little pats and place on the bottom of the crock pot
Add the apples on top
Next pour the brown sugar in, sprinkle the cinnamon over top of the apples and add the pinch of salt
Add the oats next
Pour the milk and water over top of the oats
DO NOT STIR…I repeat…DO NOT STIR!
Cover with a lid and cook on low for about 8 hours
Wake up and ENJOY! I serve ours with a drop of extra milk in the morning to make it extra creamy.
See, I told you it’s super easy and also so super delicious!
