My daughter, who refuses to eat oatmeal, declares this “Inside Out Apple Pie” to be her favorite breakfast. (Her brother calls it “Apple Pudding.”)
It’s oatmeal, all right, but with lots of apples and a bit of sweet caramelly goodness, so somehow in her seven-year-old mind, it’s not her despised breakfast nemesis and will gobble down two bowls before I can sufficiently cool the servings for her two little brothers.
And really, I shouldn’t even call this Caramelized APPLE Slow Cooker Oatmeal, because it works just as well with fresh peaches, cherries, berries, and other fruits that stew well and that you would typically serve with oatmeal.
And of course, it’s made with natural sweeteners that are adaptable to your family’s tastes.
The only caveat is that it takes 10-15 minutes to pull together in the evening, since you have to cut up all the apples, but if that’s okay with you, this recipe certainly is very easy – and DEFINITELY could be taught to the kiddos to make themselves (just dump in blueberries instead of cutting up apples if you don’t trust your kiddos with knives quite yet…..).
So, really, this recipe is one of the best kind: it’s a slow-cooker breakfast, it’s easily gluten-free, the kids can take ownership of preparing breakfast, and it’s just plain delicious.
Here’s to easy mornings!
