Why not make sure that your office starts the day with a healthy breakfast? I don’t suggest leaving the slow cooker unattended except on warm, so start it about an hour before you leave the office (on HIGH), the let it go all night on WARM. Walk in to a wonderful office breakfast!
Slow Cooker Apple Pie Porridge
Whole grains (~1/4 of your plate)
1 cup uncooked steel cut oats
Protein (~1/4 of your plate)
-Add in: chopped walnuts, chopped almonds
(There is some protein in the milk and in the steel cut oats)
Fruits and veggies (1/2 of your plate)
–2 apples, washed and chopped (I use my apple slicer and then just chop the pieces a little more)
-Add in: bananas, raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit
Liquid (this is also your dairy serving)
-1 ¾ cup milk*
-1 1/2 cup water
*If you are looking for a dairy free recipe, substitute with almond milk, rice milk or another substitute.
-2 Tablespoons brown sugar
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-¼ teaspoon salt
-1 ½ Tablespoons butter (this is optional but I like the flavor)
-Add in-optional based on your taste: maple syrup, additional milk or butter, ground flax seed if you like
Directions. Spray your slow cooker with olive oil spray. Combine everything above EXCEPT “Add-ins”. You will add in these add-in items once the dish is cooked.
