Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oats

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (144g) steel-cut oats

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 cups “Fairlife” nonfat ultra-filtered milk

  • 1 small (149g) apple (grated or chopped)

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Stir well. Turn to “low” and cook for 6-7 hours or until the oats are soft and creamy. You can also cook on “high” for about 3 hours.

  2. Before serving, add your desired toppings (macros not included.) Our favorites are chopped walnuts, dried cranberries, apple slices, maple syrup, coconut flakes, ground flaxseed, hemp seeds, or nut butter!

Notes:

  1. Avoid cooking the oatmeal for longer than 7-8 hours otherwise, it may get mushy. Use a slow cooker with a timer if cooking for a longer period overnight.

  2. Grate the apples for a smooth, creamy texture. If you like a chewier texture, chop into ½-inch pieces rather than grating.

  3. Use any variety of apple. The sweeter the apple (Fuji or Honeycrisp, for example), the sweeter the oats will taste.

  4. To make dairy-free, substitute unsweetened almond milk for the Fairlife milk. The macros are: 31g carbs / 4.5g protein / 4g fat / 176 calories.
