My husband has old fashioned oatmeal with honey and frozen blueberries every single morning for breakfast. So when I was looking through a cookbook and came across this recipe, I thought I would make it for him for a few reasons.
1. His breakfast would already be ready for him in the morning. &
2. I thought maybe it would be nice to try a new flavor.
3. I get to try out my new crock pot!!
FYI- ** THIS MAKES WAY TOO MUCH OATMEAL FOR OUR FAMILY OF 7. SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO SCALE IT DOWN **
(adapted from Fix-It and Forget-it Christmas cookbook)
3-4 apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 tsp. of nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
2 TBS of Butter
3 cup of uncooked rolled oats
6 cups of milk
Layer the apples in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Sprinkle with brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Dot with butter
Layer oatmeal over the fruit.
Pour milk over oatmeal and stir together until well blended. Cover cook on low for 6 hours. Then wake up to the smell of baking apples. So yummy.
I served it with a bit of whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
I was super YUMMY! The only thing that my husband didn’t like about it was the texture, since he is used to having old fashioned rolled oats every morning he likes his oatmeal to have some bite to it. This oatmeal cooks so long that it is more like instant oatmeal in texture. But the flavor is so great! But like I said it also makes way to much, when I make it again I would try making about 2/3 of a batch.
