I make these steel cut apple pie oats every Sunday without fail. I usually spend part of my Sunday on meal planning and prep. This is the perfect recipe for prepping for breakfast for the week. Normally, I make 1.5 batches Bruce eats this 5 days a week and usually I have it twice. He is a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast and I like to mix things up! This literally takes 5 minutes to prep and toss in the slow cooker, it doesn’t get any easier then that. I love love love my slow cooker, I have the Hamilton Beach Programmable Slow Cooker and I use it all the time. It’s a great way to make healthy meals when you have a busy life!
