Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal

I made this for the hubby to enjoy this morning. He's been trying to eat healthier since he found out he has elevated cholesterol. So out went the bacon & eggs and in came the oatmeal...everyday. Honestly, even he (who loves oatmeal more than anyone I know), is getting sick of it every single day. So I, like the wonderful wife that I am, found him a new oatmeal recipe. Because everyone should eat more oatmeal, right?

2 c. steel cut oats
8 c. water
2 c. apple sauce
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. cloves
1/2 t. allspice
1/4 c. brown sugar

1. The night before, spray your crock pot with some oil. Or better yet, if you have one of those nifty crock pot liner bags, use it!
2. Combine all the ingredients & cook on low for 7-9 hours.
3. In the morning, stir well & serve with your favorite oatmeal garnishes (nuts, raisins, etc.)
