Apple Pie Breakfast - Overnight Oatmeal (Slow-Cooker)

Who wouldn't want to wake up to a warm apple pie for breakfast?  It takes about 2 minutes to put this in your slow cooker.  Wake up, put the coffee on and breakfast is served.  This recipe uses steel cut oats, a little more sturdier than rolled oats.  Perfect for cold, winter weekday mornings to get you and your kids off to a nutritious, healthy start!

l cup steel-cut oats (or Irish oats)
4 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup half & half
2 apples, peeled and cut into 1" chunks
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Add all ingredients to your slow cooker, set on Low setting for 8-10 hours.  Add sugar to taste.
Easy Peasy!

Makes two hearty servings.
