Crockpot Apple Oatmeal

As I said recently, I’ve taken on breakfast as a challenge over the past year and a half. It was the meal I skipped most often because I either didn’t find the food appetizing or it was just to much of an effort to make.

So I’ve tried about a dozen crockpot hot cereal recipes, and I finally found one that we L-O-V-E-LOVE. It’s the dates that do it, I think. Linda Larsen over at The Spruce provided the original recipe.

  • 2 cups milk (we’re using unsweetened almond milk these days)
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 2 TBSP melted Earth Balance margarine
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Spray the inside of a 2 or 4 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine milk, agave, honey, melted margarine, salt, and cinnamon in the slow cooker and mix well.

Stir in the oats, apple, and dates.

Cover the slow cooker and turn on low setting. Cook 6-9 hours until oatmeal is tender. Stir well before serving. Top with chopped nuts.

Gooey Banana Bread Batter Instant Steel-Cut Oatmeal

This is a recipe that comes from the oh she glows website. Honestly, my food processor was dirty, so I skipped grinding the oats into flour and I just made it with the whole steel-cut oats. Still delicious. Here’s a link!
