1 cup gluten-free steel-cut oats (not quick-cooking!)
2 large apples (or 3 small), peeled, cored and chopped into roughly ¾-inch pieces
1½ cups tempt hemp milk (your choice of flavor)
2½ cups water
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil (optional)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons hemp seeds (You can also use flaxseeds if you prefer.)
2 tablespoons good quality maple syrup
- Start by greasing your slow cooker. I rubbed the inside of mine with a couple tablespoons of coconut oil, but you can use cooking spray if you prefer. (Please do not skip this step, people, or you will end up with a literal hot mess on your hands.)
- Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker. Give everything a quick stir, cover, and cook on low for 7 hours.
- Give the oatmeal a good stir, spoon into bowls and serve warm with toppings of your choice.
