I made a couple of tweaks to the recipe:
Ingredients1 cup of steel cut oats (sometimes called Irish Oats)
3 diced apples (I used Red Delicious)
1 cup apple juice (I used Mott's)
3 cups water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup raw sugar (not the white stuff)
Just a couple of notes here
I did not peel my apples, it was fine with out peeling them but if you have texture issues then you probably should peel them. I don't have the time or the patience for that ;o)If you prefer to use quick oats please check out the Cooking with Jax link above as she does have a version that can be done with quick oats as well as on the stove.
I make this in a large crock-pot but I also double the recipe as I am making it for a family of 4.
Put oats in crock-pot, add apple juice, water, cinnamon and raw sugar. De-core the apples. Dice, slice or however you like your apples cut, toss them in and stir. Turn the crock-pot on, put the lid on and forget about it! Wake up in the morning and enjoy a hot yummy breakfast.
10/23/12 - I like this much better when I only cook it for 4 hours and then put it in containers and just reheat it in the morning. When I left it overnight it was way too mushy for my liking.
I put the leftovers in 1 cup containers and put them in the refrigerator (they don't stay around for longer than a couple of days so I don't know how long they would actually last).
