This Slow Cooker Apple French Toast is SOOO easy and delicious! Just throw in your french bread cubes, egg mixture, green apples and cinnamon topping. OH YES…the cinnamon topping makes this recipe aaaaamazing! I am so glad it is Hump Day…we can get through this loooooong week together (#fellasleeptypingthispostlastnight)) with this yummy recipe!
Slow Cooker brunch recipes are so great for entertaining when your oven is tied up with other delicious creations. I will continue to experiment with more great breakfast recipes in my slow cooker until I get a double oven. Ha…I would probably still use it all the time anyway. This recipe can be thrown in your pot in the morning before the kids wake up and BAM…delicious aromas greet their senses first thing in the morning. Oh yes, warm apples and cinnamon are such a great classic combination of flavors that can’t be resisted by even the pickiest of little eaters. They are particularly wonderful on french toast with pure maple syrup. You will only have to worry about how to get all the sticky fingers and mouths clean. My one year old has begun getting quite combative when I try and wipe off her mouth. I think they need to make a highchair with a self cleaning feature…
If you are a fan of slow cooker recipes for breakfast, you should also check out my Crockpot Peach Crisp Oatmeal. It can be thrown in the crockpot overnight! This is spectacular for a quick weekday breakfast for those of us who have mornings filled with total and utter chaos (#leavingthehousewithkidsislikeherdingcats).
