Slow-Cooker Overnight Oatmeal with Apples & Walnuts
This oatmeal recipe is great when you have guests and want to serve them a special breakfast. Everything cooks in the slow-cooker overnight--all you need to do in the morning is throw together the roasted apple and walnut topping, and serve!
Tips: To prevent browning, store the chopped apples reserved for topping in a mixture of 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in the refrigerator while the oatmeal is cooking.
People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.
Equipment: 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker
