Slow Cooker Apple Pie Steel Cut Oats

A friend of ours pointed us to a link for an overnight Slow Cooker Breakfast which is perfect for Sunday mornings…just set everything up before bed and leave it overnight, and you wake up to a wonderful smelling kitchen in the morning…the recipe can easily be doubled if you have people coming over for breakfast (just add an hour to the cook time).  We found that this recipe is best eaten when cooked or later the same day, as opposed to making once big batch for the week.

  • Toppings (all optional)
    • Additional Milk
