Submitted by: RGEE75

Introduction

This is the basic recipe for oatmeal in a crockpot. The ratio is established here and you can tinker with the ingredients as you like. If you add dried fruit, use a little more water.

Ingredients

    1 cup steel cut oats

Directions

Spray the inside of a small crockpot with nonstick spray. Add the oats, water, and vanilla extract. Set the crockpot on low for a minimum of 8 hours.

Makes 4 1-cup servings.

I like to take a serving and add a spoonful or two of splenda and handful of dried fruit. Enjoy.

    Delicious! I didn't change anything from this recipe and it was great as is. I've been adding in 1 TBSP of natural peanut butter & some flax which has been fantastic, and am looking forward to trying other combos with this. Great base!! - 4/28/11

    Accidentally made this with quick oats: wrong texture, oats exploded into mush. Then made it with steel cut oats: yummy. Then tried it with Quaker Multigrain hot cereal: perfect. Added a little flax and some dried fruit. Doubled makes easy breakfast to-go for a week, with little effort! thnx! - 4/14/10

    I added about a 1/3 cup of wheatberries. Very good! This will definately be a weekly staple.
    UPDATE: reduced the water to 2 cups and added 2 c apple juice. - 2/24/09

  • Did not take 6-8 hours. Mine was ready in 4. Burnt a little on the bottom. I added cinnamon & fresh apples. Very good!! - 4/9/11

  • I like the oatmeal, but it has an oat taste to it (obviously). I almost think about horse oats, which isn't extremely appetizing. I now know I prefer regular oats to steel cut oats. - 8/5/10
