Project Pinterest: Crockpot Steel Cut Oats and Apples

I am so not a resolution person. I find it causes anxiety and a “do-or-die” mentality. That doesn’t work for me. But, I’ll save all that for another post. OK? ;)

Something I can do is to choose one food over another food. One health issue I’m not facing now is high cholesterol, thank God! But, rather than wait for it to get me, I’m trying to keep it at good levels right now. I saw this pin on Pinterest and I’d been wanting to try steel cut oats so I tried this recipe. Steel cut oats are simply whole grains that haven’t been steamed or rolled like old-fashioned oats. Ryan and I love oatmeal and I’ve been looking for something to keep the little guy full until lunch. The steel cut oats that I bought have four grams of fiber and five grams of protein in one serving and this recipe was particularly appealing because it was something I could put in the crockpot before I went to bed and it’d be ready when I woke up.

The recipe is simple!

1 C steel cut oats
1 1/2 C milk
1 1/2 C water
2 TBSP brown sugar
2 peeled and diced apples
2 tsp. ground flax seed (which I didn’t have so I didn’t use)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (I used 1 tsp.)
1 1/2 TBSP butter cut into pieces
1/4 tsp. salt

First, spray the crockpot with butter spray. Then mix all ingredients together. Turn on low and cook for 7 hours.

Voila! Breakfast is served!
