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.

    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.
