Slow Cooked Oatmeal - use your slow cooker to have this oatmeal ready and waiting for you on a cold morning. Comfort in a bowl!
Is there anything better than warm, creamy oatmeal on a cold winter morning? Not much, in my opinion.
Even better is waking up knowing that that warm, creamy oatmeal is already waiting for you. If you plan ahead and make your oatmeal in the slow cooker the night before, all you have to do is put on your warmest robe, start the coffee pot, and grab a spoon.
How to Make Slow Cooked Oatmeal
Spray the inside of the slow cooker with the cooking spray. Add all ingredients and stir. Turn on the cooker to its lowest setting. Cover and leave it overnight.
The next morning you'll be surprised how different this is than oatmeal cooked on the stovetop. I serve ours with some brown sugar substitute and fat-free Half and Half.
Also, I put a little apple-cinnamon granola on top this time. You can leave it off or use whatever kind of dried fruit and nuts you might have on hand.
