Many of you know that I love using my Crock Pot and now that the weather is starting to cool down, it is about time for me to get back into it! Many times I use my crockpot in the morning to create a meal that will be ready for dinner, but I wanted to share a CrockPot recipe that you can use while you are sleeping and wake up to a tasty and delicious and healthy breakfast for you and the family. Check out this amazing recipe for a simply and tasty oatmeal recipe:
- 2 cups of dry rolled oats
- 4.5 cups of water
- 1/4 cup of ground flax seeds
- 1 scoop of Vanilla Shakeology (or any vanilla protein powder)
- 1 large apple, peeled and chopped
- 1 cup of raisins
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tblsp of grated orange peel
- Dash of nutmeg
Combine all ingredients and put them into your crockpot and cover to cook on low for 9 hours. In the morning when you wake up, simply serve it in bowls and top with agave, maple syrup or brown sugar for a touch of sweetness. This recipe serves about 8 people. If you find that it is too thick, you can add more water or milk (I add almond milk) to it.
This is a great recipe that’s super simple and easy for busy morning or when you have to feed a large crowd. Have you ever tried Crock Pot Oatmeal or other Crock Pot Breakfast recipes? I’d love to hear about them!
