This crock pot baked oatmeal is my new favorite way to enjoy oatmeal for breakfast, its like eating a warm from the oven muffin or cookie.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup oil
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups skim milk (I used vanilla coconut milk beverage)
  • 3 cups uncooked oatmeal, rolled or quick oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
Instructions
  1. I used my 2-Quart Crockpot for this but a 3-Quart should work too.
  2. Coat your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the oil, applesauce, brown sugar, salt, and eggs until well blended and creamy. Whisk in the milk.
  4. Add the oats and baking powder and stir until well mixed.
  5. Pour into your greased slow cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 5 hours, until the edges are golden brown and the center is set. (Mine was done in 4 hours.)
  7. Serve hot or let it stand in the slow cooker for up to an hour and then cut it into pieces for serving.
