Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium apples, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
  • 2 cups steel-cut oats
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup refrigerated vanilla dairy creamer
  • Chopped pecans and additional milk, optional

Directions

Mix first eight ingredients. Place apples in a greased 4-qt. slow cooker. Top with brown sugar mixture, then with oats.
Whisk together eggs, water, milk and creamer; pour over oats. Cook, covered, on low until oats are tender, 4-1/2 to 5 hours. If desired, serve with pecans and additional milk. Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Coffee-mate Natural Bliss vanilla coffee creamer.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Steel-cut oats give this oatmeal more texture than old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats.
  • If you start this before going to bed and cook it longer than 5 hours, you'll risk burning the outside edges of the oatmeal mixture.
  • Health Tip: The oats plus apples add up to 5g fiber per serving, which will help keep you feeling full longer.

    "I really wanted to like this recipe and I'm sure most will. It is healthy which is a great. I came up with another recipe last year that is very similar; however, mine has less oats. I think that is what I didn't like in this one: the apple/oat ratio needs to be tweaked for me."
