Raise your hand if you love apples! *raises hand*

Apples have always been a favorite ingredient in my household. We always have a ton of apples (I know it’s not totally seasonal but whatever) around and we create many awesome recipes with it. Being that we’re Polish, our traditional reduced-sugar Szarlotka (Polish Apple Pie) has always been a hit and we’ve made several adaptations of it. My mom also loves to bake cakes using apples such as her fabulous Poppy Seed Apple Cake with Chocolate Glaze and her Cinnamon Apple Cake with Chocolate Chips. Both are amazing.

Today I am sharing a wonderful breakfast recipe for you made with apples! And not only that, this recipe is super easy because it only requires a Slow Cooker to do the job.

If you haven’t seen my collection of favorite fabulous pies (sweet, savory, healthy, and not) on my previous post, make sure to do it. This recipe definitely falls in that lovely creative PIE category, so hey – you might as well make it this month as a way to celebrate upcoming Pi Day 😉 Why not!

    I own a slow cooker and love using it on Sundays. I am pretty boring when it comes to toppings on oats. I like a little brown sugar with blueberries:)

  17. My slow-cooker has been essential this long, COLD winter ~ I make ginger tea in it overnight, bottle the tea in the morning,add more water (leaving in the ginger slices) and a couple of cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, black peppercorns, a few cloves, allspice berries, and star anise and leave it for the day. Then take it half/half with the ginger tea and let it sit on the woodstove for a warm pick-me-up all day. Plus, it keeps some warmth going in the kitchen overnight so that the pipes are less likely to freeze !
    I too love oatmeal topped with yogourt and pomegranate paste … yummies !! Thank you for this grrreat recipe ~ that’ll be for tomorrow morning !!

    • WOW thank you so much for the tip about the tea!! That much be fantastic. How much ginger do you add to your slow cooker?

      • My cooker is 4 and a half, so it’s filled with cold water, and I add about enough ginger (sliced as thin as I can) the same volume my hand would have if I curled my fingertips into my palm and tucked the thumb over them ~ just ‘fist-sized’ I guess ~ without the heel of the hand included. Sounds complicated, but I don’t really measure, I just do it ’til it feels right. I always use cold water to start the tea because it seems spicier to me. I love ginger ! Thanks again for your great site !! :0)

  18. Ugh I wish I had a slow cooker. I have an entire pinterest board dedicated to all the things I want to make as soon as I get one.
    This is being added to the ranks haha
    Thanks for sharing!
