Apple and Granola Breakfast Cobbler

Sometimes only a warm breakfast will do...

After a long week of rushed breakfasts that are usually cold, I'm longing for a nice breakfast on the weekend.  It's my time to indulge in the morning.  To languish in the calmness of the weekend.  Not having to rush around, go to work, is a blessing.  So to celebrate I usually make a nice weekend breakfast at least one of the two days. 

This wonderful, warm, comforting breakfast will fill you with wonderful scents and flavors.  Warm cinnamon, crunchy granola, and tart apples are at the top of the list.  

This breakfast takes a little time to cook, as it is made in the slow cooker.  So make sure to plan ahead.  With the slow cooker on high you will have to wait 2 hours in the morning for your breakfast.  So depending on how early you rise...I'm a late riser may be brunch instead!  The other option is to prepare it the night before and cook it on slow for 6-8 hours then it will be ready when you are.

No matter, the weekend is leisure time and this is definitely worth the wait!  We've made this recipe for years and it's always been a favorite.  Tastes so sinful, like you're eating dessert...but it's pretty healthy for you.  You be the judge and let me know!
