Crockpot Oatmeal to Lower Cholesterol

Crockpot Oatmeal to Lower Cholesterol

Introduction

This is the crockpot oatmeal recipe from "Cholesterol Down" by Janet Brill, which is a book I highly recommend to anyone trying to lower their cholesterol. It's also a great healthy recipe overall, and you could probably add just about anything to it after it's done. The original calls for 1c dried cranberries, but I've never made it with that so I left it out. Enjoy (I hope!)...
