On this Fun Friday I’m making a recipe that I pinned to Pinterest. Actually, I’ve already made the oatmeal and it’s been eaten, the bowl is washed and I’ve made 15 things since then…now I’m getting around to writing about it.
I repinned this recipe for crockpot oatmeal a few weeks ago and had some apples that needed to be eaten so it seemed fated that I should make it.
I’d like to say, for the record, that this is not my picture and I forgot to take one. I’d love to give credit where credit is due so if anyone knows to whom it belongs I’d love to know.
Here are the directions:
Throw 2 sliced apples, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour 2 cups of oatmeal and 4 cups of water on top. Do NOT stir. Cook overnight for 8 – 9 hours on low.
I happened to have 4 apples and I doubled the recipe which was really too much for the four of us but it would be great if you had a house full of guests and wanted to have a nice hot breakfast ready as soon as people get out of bed. I was mostly looking forward to waking up to the smell of apples and cinnamon and so were my kids. Overall, I thought it was pretty tasty although I don’t love oatmeal. The recipe says to not stir but I ended up with a blob of spices that had congregated in the middle of the crock pot and sort of stuck there so maybe next time I’ll put them in before the oatmeal. We had a nice hot breakfast on Saturday morning and Travis ate it for the rest of the week.
Have a great weekend!
