Apple-Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats
3 cups Bob's Red Mill Organic Steel Cut Oats
3 cups Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
10 cups water (you can use more, but we like the thicker texture)
1 cup Trader Joe's unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup Ideal Brown No Calorie Sweetener
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg (you can use 2 teaspoons if desired)
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (avoid added sugars and corn syrup!)
1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick spray.
2. Put all the ingredients into your slow cooker and cook overnight on low (around 8 hours).
3. Wake up to the delicious smell of your Apple-Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats. Don't freak out...the picture below is what your oats will look like when you wake up.
4. Stir a few times & serve! See - all you have to do is stir, stir, stir! :-)
If desired, you can add sliced apple, walnuts, almonds, flax seed, protein powder, or fresh berries.
He & She Tip: Store in a container that holds at least 3.5 liters.

Makes approx 12 servings. I have found each serving to be around 1 1/2 cups. However, if you have a scale you may want to weigh yours & divide that by 12 to get a more accurate weight of the serving size.
