Candy's Story

There is never anything left! I think if the kids could fit their head's in the crockpot they would lick it clean!!


1 c
oats/ steel cut oats
3 1/3 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook on low for 8 hours. These are the basic ingredients, I say "liquid" because I use the juice from canned fruits as part of the "water" in this recipe! The picture shown is cinnamon maple cranberry. I made this with dried cranberries, all the liquid was water, I just added some maple and brown sugar to sweeten a little!
You can add dried fruits & nuts, any canned fruit works great, fresh fruit, Ive even made it with diced winter squash! (shhh dont tell the kids!)
this is a wonderful, filling recipe you can do nearly anything with!
I Love the creativity with this one!
Hope you enjoy!

    You make this in the little crockpot right? I wish I had more recipes for it as our household has downsized.
    I wonder if I could use the steel cut the flavor of them. I always add vanilla extract to my oatmeal water.

    Thanks I will try that....oatmeal for breakfast!
    My hubby says IF he were going to eat oatmeal, he'd eat mine, I add vanilla extract, toasted walnuts, brown's more like a cookie when I get done. lol He's not going to of course, someone told him it was healthy, the kiss of death for any recipe. lol.....If he only knew
