If you own a crockpot, it is really very easy to make ahead a hot breakfast for the next morning. You can put this together in ten minutes before you go to bed and wake up to a spicy, aromatic, creamy and delicious bowl of oats. Use a combination of fresh apples and dried cranberries or raisins for the perfect sweet and tart combination that pairs perfectly with the creamy oats.

- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 c. water
- 1 apple, with skin, chopped
- Handful of dried cranberries or raisins
