Overnight Oatmeal

Skip the packets of instant oatmeal and wake up to this hearty version with whole ingredients instead. You’ll get extra health points for flaxseed—it’s rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, which may help lower cholesterol levels.

1 package (1.2 oz.) freeze-dried apples, crunched into smaller pieces

2 tbsp. ground flaxseed

2 tbsp. honey

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg


1.      Spray the inside of a slow cooker with oil.

2.      Put all ingredients into slow cooker.
