Wake Up to Your Breakfast

Tastes Like Apple Pie Slow Cooker Oatmeal
1 Cup steel-cut oats
2 TBS cinnamon
2 TBS brown sugar
1 TSP vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 TBS butter
1/2 Cup raisins
1 Cup diced apples
3-1/2 Cups water

Having a warm, satisfying meal ready first thing in the morning has to be the next best thing to getting breakfast in bed.  I finally bought some steel cut oats to make oatmeal in my slow cooker, and now I don't know why it took me so long to try.  It's so easy I may never go back to 1-minute oatmeal ever again, and you may not either after you try this recipe.  Get creative and add whatever fruit, nuts and spices you like, but this oatmeal is perfect for fall mornings and apple pie lovers!

Coat the interior of your slow cooker with cooking spray (very important, unless you want to spend the rest of your morning scrubbing the pot).  Add all the ingredients and stir to combine.  Set on low for 8 hours.  Serve warm with milk and chopped nuts if desired.
