Vegan Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal plus a trick to prevent the sides from burning!
Oatmeal has gotten a bit of a bad rap. It's usually thought of as the sad, boring breakfast you eat when you're trying to get healthy. I'm not the biggest fan of oatmeal, but add some apple pie, and now we're talking! This Vegan Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal is not only healthy, it tastes amazing! 
This is the perfect breakfast to make for those mornings when you don't have time to cook.  It can be started the night before so you'll awake to the delicious smell of applies and cinnamon. 
Vegan Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal plus a trick to prevent the sides from burning!
The first time I made this recipe, it tasted amazing, but the sides were burned. The second time I tried adding more liquid and I still ended up with burnt sides. The burnt sides were a real pain to clean that involved a series of soaking and scraping. The mess was such a hassle to clean that it made me questions if I ever wanted to make this delicious oatmeal again! Luckily, I didn't have to make that choice! After doing some research I found that you could put an oven safe dish inside the slow cooker! (This may be obvious to a lot of people, but I had no idea!) I put all the ingredients inside the oven safe dish and poured water into the slow cooker- I stopped approximately 1 inch below the rim of the oven safe dish.  
I was so pleased to see that the sides didn't burn! Plus, this little dish is much easier to clean that the big slow cooker.  Now, I can make this apple pie oatmeal without worrying about messy cleanup!
