Slow Cooker Apples and Oats is the best of both worlds. Heck, it is even the best of about four worlds. It is healthy, a breakfast, a dessert, is quick to throw together and is ready straight out of the crock pot. Since the recipe does not cook overnight it really works out more for brunch than breakfast. That is kind of how it is everyday at my house anyway. I just can’t get to eating until later in the morning. Yes, they say it is better for you to have a breakfast to help with your energy but, I swear, I just get sluggish if I eat right off the bat. I have lots of relatives that like it right away though. Well, enough about me.
Let’s talk about apples with cinnamon and coconut sugar. Yes, and oats and pecans where everything is cooked together with wonderful accents of flavor. I can just smell it.
2 apples, peeled and sliced, I like kind of thick slices
1/4 cup Old Fashioned Oats (rolled oats)
1/4 cup vegan butter, melted
1/8 cup Coconut Sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Chia Seed (optional)
1/4 1/8 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 cup Pecans, chopped
This serves 2-3 people but it is easily doubled for a family.
Put all of the ingredients in the crockpot and stir.
Turn to high (it must cook on high).
Cook 2-3 hours.
Serve hot, warm or cool.
This slow cooker recipe will not freeze well. Go ahead and enjoy it now and within the next couple of days.
