Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats

Breakfast is one of those things that we all know we need, we know is good for us, and yet, on most busy mornings, we can’t seem to get it together enough to serve a balanced, healthy breakfast. I even struggle with this on the weekends. Part of it is the planning. I mean, really, who wants to plan for breakfast? Then of course, there’s the actual cooking of a somewhat good-for-you breakfast that feels like the last thing on your busy day (or even lazy day) to do list.

Although still new-ish to me, the slow cooker (or crockpot) has totally blown my mind as of late. I don’t know if maybe I was living under a rock, but my goodness, a slow cooker makes life easier. It’s basically a kitchen wizard and makes meal-making SO much easier. You dump all of your ingredients in, set it, and forget it.

And you can MAKE BREAKFAST IN IT. I know; right!?

I’ve already tackled dinner (and dessert) in our slow cooker: this 3-Ingredient Trader Joe’s Thai Coconut Curry Chicken and Hearty Chicken Vegetable and Quinoa Soup have both become slow cooker staples in our kitchen, and if you’ve never tried dessert in a slow cooker, allow me to introduce you to slow cooker/crockpot apple crisp. SO good. (By the way, this Instant Pot basically does it all – slow cooker, rice cooker, pressure cooker – and you’ll love it.) But breakfast; it totally works too!

Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats

Slow cooker apple cinnamon steel cut oats are hearty, delicious and healthy, with heaps of cinnamony flavor. Cooking them in a slow cooker also makes it an unbelievably simple breakfast option on those busy, crisp fall and winter mornings.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 apples, cut into small chunks (I used Honeycrisp)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cardamom (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Optional Toppings:

  • apple slices or chunks
  • fresh berries
  • nuts (like walnuts or pecans)
  • pepitas
  • milk
  • maple syrup
  • honey
  • brown sugar
  • peanut butter or almond butter
  • shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. Spray the bowl of your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Stir together all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and set on low for 6 hours to 8 hours. 6 hours works well, but 8 hours will give you even softer oats. If you are around, while the oatmeal is cooking, stir once or twice. If you are not around to stir, it may stick to the sides a bit, but should still be fine. I made it once without stirring for 6 hours and once when I stirred at 3 hours (of 6) and both tasted great.
  2. Serve the oatmeal hot with extra milk, maple syrup, apple slices, and nuts on top.
  3. Any leftover oats can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge (use jars for on-the-go breakfasts!). Stir in a splash of milk before reheating to bring back some of the moisture.

I’m such a big fan of steel cut outs. Also often referred to as Irish or Scottish oats, steel cut oats are a type of oatmeal that are processed by chopping the whole oat groat into several pieces, rather than rolled. Steel cut oats take longer to cook than regular oats, and have a hearty, chewy texture; a.k.a., they’re perfect for cooking in a slow cooker or crockpot. (We love this brand!)

It’s so satisfying to have an entire hearty meal ready to go in a crockpot. You just throw all of your ingredients in and let that slow cooker work its magic.

Don’t forget to serve your slow cooker apple cinnamon steel cut outs with all of your favorite toppings. A few tasty suggestions for topping your oats:

  • apple slices or chunks
  • fresh berries
  • nuts (like walnuts or pecans)
  • pepitas
  • milk
  • maple syrup
  • honey
  • brown sugar
  • peanut butter or almond butter
  • shredded coconut

Little Love Notes

Lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc. shares a few little love notes to the things she loved most this week, including decorating for fall, Airbnb’s most popular listing ever, and white chocolate pumpkin scones. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

Happy Friday! Who’s busy decorating for Halloween this weekend? Other than a few pumpkins, I feel SO behind. Normally, on October 1st, I’ve got my giant rubbermaid bins out, hanging bats and pumpkins and witches; but of course, a certain perfect newborn came whirling in on the 3rd, thwarting my Halloween decorating ambitions. Here’s to hoping we can get it done this weekend! As for life around here, we’re adjusting to a new normal with two girls. Of course, having a two-and-a-half week old and a three-year-old means we’re tired ALL of the time, but it’s learning to juggle two tiny humans that’s been the biggest challenge. Still, I melt every time they do anything adorable (which is about every other second), and I can’t get enough. We’re going to attempt to go somewhere with the girls this weekend, mostly to give Mama and Scarlett a chance to be out of the house. (Thank goodness for Scarlett’s school each weekday morning; I think that’s really kept things mostly normal-ish for her and I’m so grateful.) Any moms out there have any sage words of advice about parenting multiples? The juggle is SO real.

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes to the things I loved most this week …

Dear Anthro lovers, Anthropologie is turning 25 today and it’s their BEST Anthro Day yet: I’m talking 25% off EVERYTHING! The sale is ON.

Dear picture perfect, this photographer spends an eternity waiting for museum visitors to match artwork and the result is worth the wait.

Dear cool weather must-haves, a pretty perfect velvet dress for fall.

Dear wanderlust, you’ll never guess where and what Airbnb’s most popular listing ever looks like.

Dear good scents, an education in finding the right fragrance.

Dear bride styles, the evolution of wedding dresses throughout history.

Dear smiley face no-no’semoji etiquette in work emails.

Dear playing dress-up, here’s a pretty good guess at what everyone’s going to be for Halloween this year.

Dear weekend baking, white chocolate pumpkin scones with espresso glaze.

Get the origins of these sweet little love notes, here, and catch up on love notes of the past.

10 Scarves Under $20 That Only Look Expensive

I’m addicted to scarves, but my wallet can only handle so many. Still, the heart wants what the heart wants. Cozy, buttery, ever stylish scarves. Does anyone else think a scarf can totally make an outfit? Even if I’ve just thrown on a t-shirt and jeans or a tunic and leggings, tying a scarf around my neck just makes it look like I tried. And thank goodness for that!

Lately, I’ve fallen down the Amazon rabbit hole; I can’t believe all of the goodness to be had. (Remember these favorite fall-perfect sweaters under $30?) But today we’re talking about the scarves; SO many cute scarves under $20 that only look expensive. I love wearing one and getting all of these questions about where I got my scarf only to be greeted with shocked looks when they find out it was around $15 on Amazon. That’s a fashion win, if you ask me.

As a mama, I’m already hopelessly devoted to Amazon; ahem, diapers in two-days flat. But Amazon also has this massive selection of chic scarves (and fashion) at crazy low prices; plus all of it ships in two days or less so I can be in that fall-ready cozy oversized scarf in no time.

So without further ado, and because I know you’re just as obsessed with scarves as I am, I’m sharing 10 of my current favorite fall-perfect scarves, all under $20 (and plenty under $10 and $15); but hurry, they’re sure to sell out fast!

Our Favorite Harvest Salad

I’m so excited to share one our favorite salads; the harvest salad.

Full disclosure: this harvest salad is totally a knockoff of the harvest bowl at sweetgreen; but I fell so madly in love with the salad on my first trip to sweetgreen in NYC a few years back, that I’ve never been able to order anything else from the place on trips to both NYC and DC. Soooo, I figured out how to make our own version of our favorite harvest bowl salad at home. And basically now I feel like I’m winning at life. I get excited about food, guys.

How to make the most amazing knockoff version of the harvest bowl salad at sweetgreen. This one is salad done right. Click through for the recipe. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc - Our Favorite Harvest Salad by North Carolina foodie blogger Glitter, Inc.

It’s kind of amazing how a few simple ingredients can completely transform an ordinary salad. I actually think my husband loves this harvest salad (and that’s a bold claim when it comes to salad), because it resembles an actual meal. Full of amazing harvest-y ingredients like kale (yeah, not his favorite, but I can totally get away with it in THIS salad!), apples, roasted sweet potatoes, wild rice, white cheddar cheese (though you can use goat cheese as well), toasted almonds, and shredded chicken, it’s all so, so good.

This harvest salad is hearty and cozy and so filling without being terribly bad for you, thanks to a lighter balsamic vinaigrette.

The trick to this harvest salad is coating every delicious bite in that savory sweet balsamic vinaigrette dressing. At sweetgreen they toss the salad like crazy. I mean, they’re master salad tossing experts. I think that’s half the secret to any great salad place. They get every inch of that salad coated in dressing and it tastes SO good that way. Your best bet is to put it in a really big mixing bowl or in a large tupperware container with a lid and shake, shake, shake.

Delicious Harvest Salad

A homemade twist on everyone's favorite sweetgreen harvest bowl salad, this one is salad done totally right.

Ingredients

  • kale (chopped well)
  • diced apples
  • diced, roasted sweet potatoes
  • wild rice
  • diced white cheddar cheese (goat cheese works well too, but I just love white cheddar)
  • toasted almond slivers
  • chopped grilled or shredded chicken
  • balsamic vinaigrette

Instructions

For the Sweet Potatoes:

Dice one or two whole sweet potatoes. Spread evenly on a baking sheet (I like to cover my baking sheet in a piece of parchment paper or tin foil for minimal clean-up), toss in one to two tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes to one hour. Allow to cool.

NOTE: You can easily store your roasted sweet potatoes in a tupperware for a few days after roasting to keep adding to your salad.

For the Balsamic Vinaigrette: 

In a mason jar, combine:

1-2 tablespoons honey1 tablespoon dijon mustard1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt1/2 teaspoon freshly crushed black pepper, finely ground1 garlic clove or shallot, minced1/4 cup balsamic vinegar3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil Screw the lid on tight and shake vigorously. Store in the refrigerator. Also, shake well before serving. Enjoy!

You can also use your favorite store-bought balsamic vinaigrette or balsamic vinaigrette mix.

For the Salad:

Prepare your wild rice according to the instructions on the package. Allow to cool.

Toast an even layer of almond slivers on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a toaster oven or the oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

You can use either chopped grilled chicken or shredded chicken. (We sometimes shred a roasted chicken from the grocery store and sometimes just make an extra grilled chicken breast or two from dinner the night before and store the cooked chicken in the refrigerator for the next day's salad.)

Dice all of your remaining ingredients up well and toss everything together, generously coating in dressing.

Everyone is Obsessed With These Affordable Velvet Chairs on Amazon

I’m often amazed by the great fashion and home décor items you can find on Amazon. I mean, yes, we all know and love Amazon for their fast and free two-day prime shipping on basic necessities. Like everyone else, we order everything from HDMI cables to diapers to parchment paper on Amazon. I’m way too spoiled by the convenience of having things I would otherwise have to make a trip to the store for show up right to my front door in just a day or two (and sometimes the very same day.)

But something I’ve come to REALLY love on Amazon; all of the home décor goodness. This rustic three tier tray (last seen here on the blog and here it is full of cupcakes at Scarlett’s first birthday party) remains one of my favorite pieces and one I kept asked about on Instagram, etc. most frequently; I adore this straw market bag and hang it all over the house for odds and ends; my favorite Stendig wall calendar; these stalks of artificial lavender (they look nearly real) and faux greenery like this hanging fern; string globe lights for our patio (and here’s how to decorate with globe lights indoors for the cooler months ahead); our rustic wood coat rack (seen here with the straw market bag); the list goes on and on.

Well, I’ve stumbled upon yet another seriously awesome Amazon home find. And I might be the last to know because these affordable mid-century modern velvet chairs have been SO popular.

The internet is obsessed with these affordable mid-century modern velvet chairs on Amazon, and you will be too. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc - Everyone is Obsessed With These Affordable Velvet Chairs on Amazon by North Carolina style blogger Glitter, Inc.

Seriously, this Amazon find is BIG in the design world right now.

And with good reason …

The internet is obsessed with these affordable mid-century modern velvet chairs on Amazon, and you will be too. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc - Everyone is Obsessed With These Affordable Velvet Chairs on Amazon by North Carolina style blogger Glitter, Inc.

These mid-century inspired velvet dining chairs, sold on mid-century inspired velvet dining chairs for as little as $93.99, gained major notoriety in closed design groups on Facebook. But the secret is out, and I’m spilling the beans here, because we all deserve beautiful and affordable velvet chairs.

And let me tell you, these velvet chairs are a steal. VERY similar mid-century modern velvet chairs sell for upwards of $400 to $800 a chair. I kid you not.

Not only would it serve as a gorgeous vanity or office chair, these mid-century inspired velvet dining chairs might be the perfect solution if you’ve been on the hunt for new dining room chairs. Buying 6 to 8 dining room chairs can get really pricey, fast. These velvet chairs keep it affordable and chic. Such a win.

mid-century inspired velvet dining chairs sells them in rose pink, blue, grey, and light green, and GreenForest sells these velvet chairs with a quilted back in rose pink, blue, grey, light green, and bordeaux.

Little Love Notes

Lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc. shares a few little love notes to the things she loved most this week, including THE perfect scarf, a happiness journal, and pistachio chocolate cookies.

It’s been more than a week with our sweet baby girl, Emme, and I swear there are moments where I feel like she’s been here all along; she just fits, you know? Scarlett is completely smitten with her little sister, and I find myself begging her to stop throwing her arms around Emmeline at least every other minute. I mean, a newborn is a peanut after all. Not such a bad problem to have. Of course, we’re exhausted, but it comes with the territory. Trying to stay on top of blogging and two kids, has been quite the feat, still I know slowly but surely, I’ll get the hang of it.

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes to the things I loved most this week …

Dear feel good tricks, this simple activity can make you so much happier. (It’s science.)

Dear fellow mamas, anyone ever try the Miracle Swaddle? Emme is basically a Houdini, and we can’t keep her little arms secure in any of our homemade swaddles. We’ve heard good things about the Miracle Swaddle. Have you tried it?

Dear end-of-week giggles, if you aren’t already following mama, @mayavorderstrasse, now is the time. She’s beautiful and hilarious and all of her Instagram snaps are A+.

Dear DIYs to try, the cutest owl pumpkins made using just a Sharpie.

Dear chiller temps, THE perfect scarf. (Aaaand I plan on pairing it with this sleeved t-shirt dress in black I just snagged on Amazon. It was $16.99 (and several of the colors are $9.99!) I have a feeling I’ll be living in this all fall.

Dear party planning prep (because it’s almost the season!), how to throw a large dinner party without losing your mind.

Dear weekend baking, pistachio chocolate sable cookies. (These look SO good.)

Get the origins of these sweet little love notes, here, and catch up on love notes of the past.
