I am on a roll with slow cooker oatmeal. We’ve been loving it lately!
This time, I decided to make use of the apple cider in the fridge. A mug of hot spiced cider is a winter favorite. So it has to be good for a late autumn breakfast too, right?
Sweet apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon and other spices transform a plain bowl of oatmeal into holiday breakfast special.
We don’t get snowed in here in Kentucky very often, but I’m going to keep this breakfast in mind just in case we get a big snowfall this winter. I can’t think of anything more comforting than waking up to world wrapped in white and having a bowl of this spiced oatmeal to go with the view. Cozy!
I don’t have an ingredient photo for you, but all the ingredients are very common.

This sounds delicious, what brand of apple cider do you prefer?
Sarah, I don’t have a favorite brand. I use what I can find 🙂

Could you use apple juice in place of cider?
Yes, that will work.
Do you have to use steel cut oats?
You can use old fashioned oats, but the steel cut hold up better in the slow cooker.
