Does anyone have a good recipe for slow cooker oatmeal? I'd like to cook it overnight and have a really delicious, healthy breakfast ready for the family when we wake up.

Thanks so much!

Here you go
I make mine with 1/2 c steel cut oats, 1/3 c quinoa and 1/3 cup spelt berries but I like a lot of texture :) I also add dried fruits and cinnamon.

Thanks. Looks good. I don't think my kids would like your extra-textured version too much ;) but I will add cinnamon and dried fruit for them.

Use a crock pot liner or spray really well. Seems like they set up like glue, but oh so good.

Cooking oats in the slow cooked:

Adapted from Church Potluck = Linda Larsen

With 3 TBSP of butter, toast the scotch oats or steel cut oats for about 6 or 7 minutes and throw them in the crockpot

1 1/2 c. steel cut oats
2 c. water
1 c. milk
1 1/2 c. apple juice (no added sugar juice)
1/2 salt
1/3 c. sugar (I use Whey-low)

Stir well and cook for 7-8 hours on low.

Opt: After the oats are done cooking, Ms. Larsen adds in 1 c. blueberries and 1 c. toasted walnuts and cooks for another 1 hour
