Slow Cooker Cran-Apple Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Cran-Apple Oatmeal | Tulips & RainI use my slow cooker all the time for chili, soup and other savory dishes, but I’ve been wanting to try something sweet. My intention was to make overnight oats, but turns out they only take a few hours. This would be the perfect addition to a casual brunch, or just throw everything in before an early morning yoga class and come home to a steaming bowl of tasty oats.

This makes pretty tasty leftovers too. Refrigerate in an airtight container. When ready to reheat, add a little milk and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.
