I recently bought a slow cooker and am now obsessed with finding good slow cooker recipes. I saw this on Pinterest and thought it would be yummy. Like apple crisp, but oatmeal style. Here’s the picture that lured me in:
This is the recipe that was in the pin caption. The pin of course didn’t link to the original recipe post, just a random tumbler home page, so I have no reference link for you (I hate you pinners that do that!).
Throw 2 sliced apples, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour 2 cups of oatmeal and 4 cups of water on top. Do NOT stir. Cook overnight for 8 – 9 hours on low. Yummy breakfast!
LIES! LIES! I’m talking to you, word “yummy breakfast!”
First off, please note that the recipe doesn’t ask you to peel the apples. If you make this recipe, I beseech you, peel the poor apples! Who wants apple skins in their oatmeal? Also, I felt like it was a little bland, needed more spices maybe?
I don’t really know where I went wrong, but I was so excited about this breakfast, and it did not live up to my expectations. Let me know if you try it and it’s better. Maybe I need to try it with a different kind of apple?
