Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oats
These days I am not in the kitchen much. I get home from work and just want to rest...all the time :) Third trimester pregnancy will do that to a person. I feel so lazy and unproductive, my poor husband is stuck crossing off things on our "to-do" list all by himself. Oy.
Can't wait for this little rascal to arrive in a few weeks! I already bought a mini apron for him/her and hope they quickly become my sous chef in the kitchen.
Most food makes my indigestion and heartburn off the charts - so food groups that are out are: dairy, gluten, anything with tomatoes, most meat, and yeah...pretty much everything. I was getting really sick of my normal bowl of oatmeal in the morning so I thought I would try something different. This was actually really tasty and easy, and I will be making it again! Leftovers are stored in the fridge and reheated with some almond milk.
Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
1 cup steel cut oats
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 (14 oz) can of coconut milk
14 oz almond milk (or any kind of milk you have on hand)
1 1/4 cup water
2 cups cubed apples (I peeled mine, but it is up to you)
3 TBS coconut oil
1 TBS vanilla
1/2 TBS cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
Spray slow cooker with nonstick spray or rub with coconut oil. Stir all ingredients together and set on low 6-8 hours. Serve hot with extra milk or almond milk. I topped mine with hemp seeds for a protein boost.
