Three healthy slow-cooker recipes
Slow cooker baked apples
6 medium to large green apples
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoon coconut oil, butter or ghee
Begin by coring the apples.
Place the apples in a crock pot and add ½ inch of water. Add the raisins, honey, cinnamon, and coconut oil over the apples. Cook them on low through the night and enjoy a delicious hot meal in the morning.
You can top it with cream, yogurt, coconut milk, or eat it plain.
Crockpot breakfast burrito
1 15oz can black beans
1 10oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 cup uncooked pearl barley
2 cups vegetable broth
¾ cups frozen corn
¼ cup chopped green onion
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground red pepper
3 garlic cloves
Mixing the ingredients together; this makes the filling. Heat it up in the crock pot for 4-5 hours on low.
Once it’s done cooking, scramble up as many eggs as you want. Place some filling on a tortilla along with some of the scrambled eggs. Roll it up and serve.
You can garnish your burrito with whatever you fancy, such as shredded cheese, salsa, or guacamole.
