Cinnamon, apples, and pecans. They all scream FALL!!
If you put these together and mix with some other ingredients, you will have one very fabulous meal just waiting to be gobbled up.
I haven't had any luck in the slow cooker department lately so I was skeptical at trying this recipe out for fear of failure.
However, this recipe caught my eye while surfing the net, so I had to at least give it a shot.
I have never tried pecans in my oatmeal so this experience was first for me. I must say that I am now a fan.
This is the perfect recipe to usher in the fall season and so simple to make!
Just peel and slice the apples, combine everything in the slow cooker, and cook on low. That's it. Literally.
Make it now...and report back to me later ;)
