This cooks 4-5 hrs in the crockpot on low. I use steel cut oats, I get them at Big Lots, name brand, larger pkg, and cheaper than the health food or grocery store.

Candy Hummer first introduced me to making oatmeal in the crockpot.

Serves:

7- 1/2 C servings

Prep:

5 Min

Cook:

5 Hr

Ingredients

1 c
steel cut oats....(toasted)
3 c
filtered water (exchange 1/2 water for skim milk, for creamier oatmeal)
1/2 c
dried fruit; raisins, craisins, blueberrys, cherrys
1 tsp
evoo
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 pinch
salt, optional....you won't miss it.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Toast the oats in a skillet until browned lightly and the smell toasty.
2
Spray 1.5 qt. crockpot with PAM
3
Combine all ingredients into the crockpot.
4
Cook on low 4-5 hrs. I find it better to do this during the day, as at 8 hrs it sticks bad!
5
This will make 7, 1/2 C servings. I divy it up into a muffin tin; which I refrigerate over night (cover lightly with foil) then store in an airtight container for a weeks worth of breakfasts. I break up a 'muffin' into a bowl, add 1/2 c of skim milk, sometimes a 1/4 c of toasted walnuts and a tsp of brown sugar.
6
Microwave for 1 min. stir and enjoy.
