Overnight Oatmeal with Apples

Overnight oatmeal with apples

2 small apples cut into ½ inch pieces

Juice of ¼ small lemon

4 cups water

1 cup steel-cut oats

1 cinnamon stick

½ tsp kosher salt

¼ cup packed brown sugar

Lowfat milk

This recipe said to bake in the oven overnight for 8 hours…I really didn’t want to leave my gas stove on for that long, so I used the crock pot and it turned out great!  It ‘s a great idea to do if you have a busy morning and want a warm breakfast waiting for you.

Place all ingredients into crockpot except milk and cook on low 8 hours.

Yields 1 cup oatmeal with 3 Tbsp milk for 5 points.
