When it's too hot to cook, I love to use my crock pot!
Here's something great to wake up to for a yummy breakfast!
Cooking With Jax has this recipe and other yummies:
Ingredients- 1 cup of steel cut oats*- 3 diced apples (Gala is good)
- 1 cup apple juice (Oasis is a good brand)
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Directions - Slow Cooker
For Best Results: Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook for 2-4 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low until it reaches the consistency that you like. Be sure to stir every hour or so.
* You can also cook longer without stirring, but you have to add more water liquid and it does come out a bit mushier. Add an extra cup of liquid for 7-8 hours in the slow cooker.
Directions - Stovetop Method
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes, or until it reaches the consistency that you like.
Delicious when topped with a drizzle of organic maple syrup, honey, or a sprinkle of brown sugar. I usually top mine with another dash of cinnamon.
This recipe makes 6 - 1 cup servings.
