I love this recipe for lots of reasons.  I love waking up in the morning to a cinnamon and apple smell.  It’s super easy and I can whip it up in a few minutes after the kids go to bed.  I don’t have to get breakfast ready in the morning and there are tonnes of leftovers.  Plus, it’s very filling AND it’s super yummy.

It’s so good Matt was eating it as a dessert in the morning…and had to put whipped cream on it. I passed on the whipped cream and opted for a healthier version, vanilla yogurt but I also like it with milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.

This is how easy it is:

-Add sliced apples

-Cover with rolled oats.

-Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon

-Add just enough water and a bit of apple juice (optional) until you see it in the crockpot

-Add blueberries on top (optional).

-Cook on low for 8 hours.

That’s it. Super easy and super yummy – my motto 🙂
