Here we go.  No Crockpot blog is complete until you have done slow cook oatmeal.  It seems to be the staple for breakfast.  The pot is set.  The alarm is ready for 11:00PM (7 hours of cooking) and we should be good to go.  Seeing as I have no idea what a “flax seed” is we are skipping that (seriously, who has flax seed laying around their house?)  The rest is dump and heat:


  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, cut into ½-inch pieces (2-½ to 3 cups chopped)
  • 1-½ cups fat-free milk
  • 1-½ cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-½ tablespoons butter, cut into 5-6 pieces (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

“COOK”(sic) for 7 hours

stay tuned….
