"I just can't get up in the morning to make my hubby breakfast before he leaves for work, so I put this in the slow cooker the night before, and breakfast is served! A hearty breakfast that's easy to do."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Place the steel cut oats, water, apple, raisins, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into a slow cooker, and stir to combine and dissolve the sugar. Cover the cooker, set to Low, and allow to cook 6 to 7 hours (for firm oats) or 8 hours (for softer texture).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Important: Use steel cut oats or this will be a mushy mess. Also, if your crock cooks too high, cook on the warm setting.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

A simple solution to it sticking and burning on the sides of the crockpot is to cook it in a water bath in the crock. Just spray a 1 1/2- 2 qt casserole (whatever you can fit in your crockpot-i'...
