Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with Whipped Cream
I've never been an oatmeal fan, but I want to be. I mean, I love oatmeal when it's mixed with lots of butter and sugar in oatmeal cookies, but hot mushy oatmeal in a bowl for breakfast has never done it for me. I think it's the texture and the blandness. At any rate, this post isn't supposed to be about how much I don't like oatmeal, but I kind of surprised myself last night when I decided to try this recipe out after seeing it on Pinterest. It comes from a blog called, a blog I have yet to figure out.
So, did I like THIS oatmeal? Well, I ate a good size serving and enjoyed it. The bottom layer is ooey gooey, appley, and the very top is slightly dry. The middle is, well, oatmeal. I enjoyed this oatmeal even more after I put a hearty amount of whipped cream on it (I have a lot of stabilized whipped cream left after making tiny dulce de leche cheesecakes earlier in the week). My husband had some too and said he liked it (after he added more sugar). So, if I do try this again, I will probably up the sugar to about half a cup and I might try the steel cut oats as my facebook friends are suggesting after reading my post about my adventures in oatmeal today.
If you like oatmeal, and you like your Crock Pot, then you need to try this if you haven't already.

Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
     --adapted from

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (next time I'll use 1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 4 cups water
Place apples in the bottom of a Crock Pot. Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl; then sprinkle evenly over the apples.
Pour oatmeal evenly over the apples and sugar. Pour water over the oatmeal. Do not mix.
Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours.
