Day 102: Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

Serves 2

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 to 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 1/2 cups water, or a combination of water and apple juice
1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 medium apple peeled, cored, and chopped

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours, or overnight, or on HIGH for 2 to 3 hours. Serve with milk of cream.


If you cook the apple the entire time, it blends into the oatmeal. If you prefer chunks, add the apple during the last 30 minutes of cooking. I added the apple initially. I think if I make this again I will add it at the end. I was disappointed in this breakfast. I smelled it cooking all night long and it smelled great. But it was a mushy mess and I only ate it because I felt obligated. I had leftovers but I never ate them and ended up throwing it away. I wonder if it is because it cooked too long. 2 stars.

    You might have better luck with steel cut oats.

  2. I tried this last night, made 4 cups of oatmeal - left out the apple entirely and it was really good...perhaps more volume of oats to cook helped.
