CROCK POT APPLE CINNAMON OATMEAL

Breakfast. It’s the meal we’ve all been taught we should never skip. But in everyone’s hectic lives, we mostly either do skip breakfast or have a piece of toast and a cup of coffee. Not very nutritious at all and a few hours later, you are so hungry, you eat way more than you ever would normally.

I get it, mornings are hectic in our household as well. Especially during the week. But this recipe actually makes it easy for you to have breakfast without adding any more time to your morning routine. Seriously! Why? Because it’s done in a crock pot overnight.

Whoa!!! What?

Yes, you read that correctly.

Over night-t-t. (emphasis on the “teh”)

This recipe is so incredibly easy to do, it’s the perfect breakfast to make with a young child, or, someone who just plain does not cook can pull this one off.

There are only 5 ingredients in this dish. Yep, just 5. And because you are smart, you can figure out all 5 probably, or at least 3 of them. Apples – check; cinnamon – check; oatmeal – check. The other 2 ingredients are brown sugar and water. That’s it!

Doesn’t that just look delish? Almost complete BA-YUMMO!

This is so easy to make and it’s good for you – low-calorie and a great source of fiber. Plus, it’s much better for you than the instant packet kind. With this, you know exactly what is going in to your dish and ultimately, in your body and your family’s bodies.

This is a perfect over-night breakfast to make when you have a house full of teens or guests where you need to feed them quickly in the morning. You will be able to actually sit down with your guests instead of being in the kitchen preparing and cooking breakfast.
