Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal in the Slow Cooker

Servings: 7 (3/4-cup) servings

Ingredients

  • 2 apples, cored, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk (or alternative – unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats (regular, not quick-cooking)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (or substitute maple syrup or other desired sweetener)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons light margarine
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • Optional toppings: chopped nuts, dried or fresh fruit, additional milk

Directions

Coat inside of 3-1/2 quart (or larger) slow cooker with cooking spray. Add all ingredients (except optional toppings) to slow cooker. Stir, cover and cook on low for approximately 7 hours (slow cooker times can vary). Spoon oatmeal into bowls; add optional toppings if desired.

Recipe can be doubled in 6-quart or larger slow cooker. Increase cooking time 1 hour.
