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.

Review:

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.
