Note: Do not substitute rolled, cooking or quick oats for the steel cut oats. They will get way too mushy in the crockpot, whereas the steel cut oats will hold up perfectly.
Stir the oats, brown sugar, coconut milk, water, cubed apples, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in your crockpot. Set the crockpot on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours.
In the morning, stir everything thoroughly until it's all mixed up and looks like oatmeal (when you first look at it, before stirring, it will look runnier than it actually is after stirring). There will be a few pieces that get stuck to the bottom of the slow cooker.
To serve, ladle oatmeal into bowls and garnish with walnuts, a drizzle of maple syrup and more cinnamon. Enjoy! (Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat with a little bit of milk).
