Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Everyone loves their slow cooker for having dinner ready when they get home from work, but with this Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oatmeal you can put your slow cooker to work overnight and have a hot breakfast waiting when you wake up! It couldn’t be easier. Just combine the ingredients in the slow cooker right before you go to sleep and when your alarm goes off in the AM all you have to do is wake up and enjoy. This oatmeal is super filling and lightly sweet, perfect for fall. It’s perfect on its own but you can also customize it by mixing in nuts, seeds or additional fruits. I pictured it here with a few pecans on top and I also love tossing in a few raisins. It’s easy to make it your own and it’s sure to fill you up and keep you satisfied. All that and it’s just 173 calories or 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints per serving!
