Baked Apple Oatmeal – recipe

So Sunday night I decided to get domestic and bake. One of the dishes was something that Nikki over at My Life, My Way posted back in December that was Pinterest inspired.  It’s a baked apple oatmeal cooked up in the crock pot.  If you have not seen my picture on Instagram yet, here it is:

Doesn’t it look yummy?  This really is a super easy recipe. I do suggest you use a liner for your crock pot since there will be a baked on “crust”.  Save yourself scrub time later! However, soaking did the trick for me. Also if you like your oatmeal thick, cut back just a tad on the water. 
Just add the ingredients as they are listed layering each on top of the others.

You will need:
2 apples diced ( I used gala because that’s what I had but Granny’s would be great too)
Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon.
Then sprinkle 1/3 cup brown sugar (I used light brown) over that.
Next add 2 cups of oatmeal evenly.
Top is all off with 4 cups of water. 
Cover and bake on low for 8-9 hours.
That’s it! Easy Peasy right?
I added 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. Raisins would be good.  Or how about mixed berries or peaches with some cream added just before you sink your spoon in? 
I was also asked about the nutritional value of this dish so I worked it up on MFP as a recipe that serves 4 people ( minus the pecans )

I have to say, this was a nice treat to wake up to a house that smelled like apple pie! And the best part of course was the convenience.

  1. I use My Fitness Pal and you can enter your own recipes. It's a handy little feature especially if what you ate is not already in the data base!
    This was a nice treat. I even got a “thank you for a great breakfast” as Al was leaving for school. She told me I should make it again some time since it's so convenient. Thanks again for sharing!

  2. That is so cool that you can create your own nutritional info from My Fitness Pal. I have a similar oatmeal recipe that I make every now and then as well! Happy Friday Mary!
