  1. Bring milk and water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.
  2. Place hot milk mixture, apple, and next 5 ingredients in a slow cooker coated with cooking spray, stir well. Cover and cook on LOW 7 hours or until oats are tender.
  3. Ladle oatmeal into individual bowls; top with maple syrup and hazelnuts. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups oatmeal, 1 T. syrup, and 1 1/2 tsp. hazelnuts).

Recipe Notes

As you can see, we didn't have any nuts so I just used some blueberries. Also, I used a slow cooker liner which would REALLY help with clean up.
