So one of my genius dietitian friends, Dawn the Dietitian, gave me a recipe for steel cut oats in the crock-pot with a can of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice! It was absolutely wonderful!
So this weekend I decided to make another version with apples! Great and simple recipe!
1 cup steel cut oats
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1/2 – 1 tsp apple pie seasoning
pinch of salt
4 cups water
Place in the crock-pot on HIGH for 4 hours and you magically will have a breakfast of champions!
