    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 granny smith apple, cored and chopped in small pieces (about 2 cups)
    • 1/2 cup oatmeal (regular or steel-cut, not quick cooking)
    • 1/4 cup pearl barley
    • 1 1/2 cups apple cider
    • 6 Kraft caramels, unwrapped (1/8 of 14-oz. bag KRAFT Caramels found in the candy, seasonal or produce section by the apples)

    Finishing Touches

    • 6 ounces yogurt (vanilla is good, Target's Archer Farms brand has a Caramel Apple flavored yogurt that's divine in th)
    • caramel syrup (Smucker's Sundae Syrup in the squeeze bottle is perfect)


    1. 1
      Spray your crockpot with cooking spray. This is an important step as I find that all overnight oatmeal recipes stick to the sides of the pot. If you have an older model without an insert that removes for cleaning, you may want to skip this and other oatmeal recipes, or slow cook during the day so you're available for intermittent stirring.
    2. 2
      Dump the apples, barley, oatmeal and cider in the crockpot, and stir well. Place the caramels on top. This can be done earlier in the evening, but wait until you go to bed to turn the crockpot on LOW.
    3. 3
      When you wake up, empty the yogurt into the slow cooker and stir. Let it warm through, stir again, and then spoon into serving bowls. Turn off the crockpot.
    4. 4
      Spoon the creamy apple goodness into serving bowls, discarding any parts that stuck to the sides of the pot. Drizzle with caramel syrup and ENJOY!

      This is SO good, I will make it again! I love waking up to a hot breakfast. I did make a couple changes. . .I added walnuts and cinnamon chips (like chocolate chips, but made of cinnamon). We didn't have yogurt with it, we had milk with it instead.

      I bet you could use different kinds of grains, like whole wheat instead of barley, or millet. Yummy!

      Outstanding oatmeal !! Other than a ver slight burn around the edges, this was one delicious tasty breakfast. Made recipe as posted. This definately had great apple flavoring. Made for Spring PAC.

      LOVED this! The flavor was fabulous. My slow cooker burned the oatmeal around the edges so I was very glad I used a slow-cooker liner for easy cleanup. I will work with this to try to keep the oatmeal from burning because it was so yummy and healthy. I'll try reducing the time or adding more liquid to see if I can get it to work for better for me.
