Overnight Crock Pot Apple-Carrot Oatmeal

This slow cooker oatmeal recipe was inspired by one of my favorite desserts – carrot cake.  I love that it has no added sugars, which will help to keep you off that sugar-roller coaster first thing in the morning.  Topping off your bowl with a generous scoop of Greek yogurt and a handful of nuts increases the protein to help keep you satisfied until lunch.  Get it started before going to bed for the night, and wake up to the sweet aroma of a warm, healthy, and EASY breakfast!  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Be sure to use STEEL CUT OATS, not rolled oats, in this recipe.

You may need to add extra liquid if you plan on leaving the oats cooking longer than 7 to 8 hours.

Serving size is listed as 6, but it's more like 6 to 8, depending on bowl size.  🙂

I highly suggest topping with a scoop of Greek yogurt.  It adds a delightful creaminess to the oatmeal!

Enjoy! 🙂
