I loved this little breakfast recipe so much that I went ahead and mixed and matched it for you!
I found the top version (Cherry Oatmeal) in one of my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks and thought it was so yummy that two days later, I mixed and matched it into Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal. The best part about this recipe is that you prepare the oatmeal at night and let it cook in the slow cooker. When morning came, we had yummy and hearty oatmeal waiting on us (and the house smelled delish!).
This is the perfect breakfast for busy weekday mornings!
3 cups regular oatmeal (not quick cooking! basic oatmeal!)
1 (21 oz) can of either apple or cherry pie filling
1 cup of water
1/4 cup powdered sugar (for the cherry oatmeal) or brown sugar (for the apple oatmeal)
2 tablespoons cinnamon (for the apple oatmeal)
Line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner (for easy clean up). Add in all of your ingredients and stir to combine. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours.
Remove lid the next morning, stir and serve.
Using the liner will make cleanup a snap too! Your family will be well fed and out the door in no time.
