Overnight Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Recipe Is Breakfast Without Lifting a Finger by Donna John

Overnight Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Recipe Is Breakfast Without Lifting a Finger

If you're used to overnight oatmeal being cold from the refrigerator in the morning, do I have a surprise for you! This easy apple cinnamon overnight oatmeal recipe is hot and ready for your bowl when you wake up. How? It cooks all night in a slow cooker. Genius, right?

When I made this apple oatmeal recipe for the first time, I had everything already in my kitchen. Here's what you need for this sweet slow-cooker oatmeal recipe: an apple, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, salt, oatmeal, milk and water. The ingredients are layered in a slow cooker, covered and set on low heat for seven to nine hours. Mine went a little over eight hours and turned out perfectly.

I love that you can adjust the amount of sugar in this recipe, not like the pre-made packets of flavored oatmeal. The smell in the house is another bonus of this breakfast recipe. Don't let another day go by without trying this easy low-sodium, slow-cooked apple cinnamon oatmeal. It makes a lovely, lazy-day brunch, too!
