A bowl of piping hot oatmeal is a great way to start the day.  It is even better when it is ready and waiting for you when you wake up.  For this recipe I put all the ingredients in my slow cooker before I go to bed.   When I walk into the kitchen the next morning, breakfast is ready.  It doesn’t take long to throw together and it is so nice having a little extra time in the morning.  This recipe serves 4-6 and is good reheated.

Lightly oil the bowl of a slow cooker.

Add 3 cups of unsweetened almond milk, 2 cups of water and 1 cup of steel cut oats.

Add 2 baking apples roughly chopped.  I use honeycrisp.

Add 1/4 cup pure maple syrup.

Add 2 teaspoons cinnamon.

Give it a stir.

Cover and set on low for 8 hours.

This is what it looks like in the morning.

Not pretty, I know.  Bear with me.

Give it a good stir and serve.
