Ingredients

  • 1 large apple or 2 small I used Gala
  • 2 c rolled oats regular or gluten free
  • 2 1/2 c milk of choice
  • 1-2 T maple syrup or honey
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 2/3 c apple sauce
  • 2-3 T chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 - 1 T cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Core and chop apple into bite sized pieces.
  • Spray slow cooker generously with spray oil. Combine all ingredients except the pecans/walnuts into slow cooker and stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours or until liquid is absorbed and apples are soft. If you want to cook overnight, add an extra 1/3 - 1/2 cup of milk, cover and set to "Keep Warm" setting. Add an extra splash of milk or cream if a bit dry when ready.
  • Before serving, stir in chopped nuts of choice and serve with an optional drizzle or honey or maple.

Notes

If your slow cooker doesn't have a "Keep Warm" setting, I suggest putting it to low and only cooking no more than 4 hours--maybe cook at night before bed and chill until breakfast.
