  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats not quick cooking
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups water
  • enough water to fill slow cooker 1/4 of the way full
  • 1/2 apple small, chopped
  • unrefined sweetener of choice to taste


  • In a small heat-proof bowl (that can hold at least two cups of water), stir together oats, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. The apples can also be added in here. I chose to keep mine out to stir in after cooking, but this is up to you. Pour two cups of water over oats.
  • Fill Slow Cooker about 1/4 to 1/2 of the way full with water (this will depend on the size of your Slow Cooker). Add the heatproof bowl with the oat mixture to the Slow Cooker. The bowl with the oats/cinnamon/vanilla has water in it, and also sits in the slow cooker surrounded by water. The water level should rise almost to the top of the bowl.
  • Turn Slow Cooker on low for 7-8 hours overnight. Using a large spoon, remove the bowl from Slow Cooker (it will be very hot!). Stir in chopped apple and sweetener of choice. Devour!
