Apple and Cinnamon Steelcut Oats (Crockpot) / Weekly Recap

Hi Everyone,

Big day today!!!  I have for you a delish, comforting, please all recipe, a super fab giveaway and my weekly recap!!  So let’s get the ball rolling and let me show you what I woke up to this morning!!

overnight oatmeal crockpot

Yah baby!  This is my Apple and Cinnamon Overnight Oatmeal.  It is amazing!  It’s creamy, filling and so darn delicious!  My Husband actually asked me for a bowl of it this morning.  After all who can resist the smell of apples and cinnamon when you wake up?  You have to remember this is a big deal, since my Husband never eats breakfast!!!

I made this overnight oatmeal in my new Crock-Pot® Create-A-Crock™ slow cooker!  I am so loving my new funky design, check it out!

I went to the Crock-Pot® Create-A-Crock™ slow cooker and they now have a design your own Crockpot, called Create-A-Crock!  You can even add photos to it!  I skipped out on adding the photos because I couldn’t decide what I wanted.  I spent days trying to decide and I opted for skipping on the photos!  It would make a great Christmas gift for Grandma, by putting pictures of the grand kids or in my case my grand dogs on it.  Or create a football themed crockpot and add photos of your Husband or Kids at the big game!  Bring it out during football season!  Your Hubby’s friends would get a kick out of it.  Totally cool!!


I am loving my funky pink circles!  It’s so me!!!  To make my overnight oatmeal, all I did was add some steelcut oats, water, apples, vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon to a bowl that fit inside my crockpot, filled the outside of the bowl with water and went to bed.  Eight hours later I had creamy, hot delicious breakfast waiting for me.  When I saw the weather last night they said high 48  and I knew it would be hard to get out of bed, yet stand in my cold kitchen and make breakfast.  Not today I didn’t.  I threw on my pink bathrobe, ran to the kitchen and grabbed me some hot comforting oats.  I cozied up in front of the tv as I watched my cooking shows.  Perfect morning!!!  Here is the oatmeal before I turned on my new Crockpot.

I didn’t add any sugar to my oats because my family has all different kinds of taste when it comes to oatmeal.  My Husband loves lots and lots of brown sugar, Little Jenny likes little sugar and me, I like maple syrup with a dollop of peanut butter!  Amazing and healthy too!!  Here are the oats fresh out of the Crockpot.

Just look how creamy and delicious it looks!  This makes for a wonderful, filling breakfast for a school or workday morning.  No fuss no mess!!!  I chose this method of placing the oats in a separate bowl, because I didn’t want it to burn and I knew I wanted 8 hours of sleep so I wouldn’t have to wake-up and worry about burnt oatmeal.  There is no way I would want to scrub that in the morning!!!  If you have leftover oatmeal, you can always refrigerate it for a few days and heat it up in the microwave.  Unfortunately we do not have any leftovers, so I will be making it again this week!!
