Overnight Crockpot Apple Oatmeal with tangy apples, nutty oats, and sweet butter and powdered sugar glaze is a perfect recipe for Fall and the holidays.
Crockpot Apple Oatmeal
So if you combined three very important aspects of Fall: apples, oatmeal, and your Crockpot, what do you get? An amazing breakfast! This Crockpot Apple Oatmeal is the very essence of Fall! A warm oatmeal breakfast with sweet, juicy apples spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, topped with a sweet butter and powdered sugar glaze drizzle. Can't start the day off any better than that, can you?! This Crockpot Apple Oatmeal recipe is also great for the holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, because it's super low-maintenance, and you won't have to worry about breakfast in the morning!
For apple selection, I'm partial to Gala apples for slow cooker purposes, but Granny Smith will also do well in the slow cooker and will give your Crockpot Apple Oatmeal a touch of sour tang to off-set the sweet brown sugar and powdered sugar glaze.

This looks really good! How would you recommend reheating for easy breakfast on following days?
I've actually never reheated it, so I'm not entirely sure. I would imagine a quick zap in the microwave would do the trick. My only concern with re-heating would be that the oatmeal might get mushier than normal. If you try it, let me know how it goes!
