This original recipe was given to me by my sister in law. I love anything that I can put in a slow cooker so I was looking forward to trying this recipe. The oatmeal turned out creamy, hearty and delicious. I made one batch and used it the whole week for breakfast. It served about 5-6 servings depending on how hungry you are! When reheating, add some milk or water and a teaspoon of biscoff spread per serving. It adds just enough creaminess and sweetness.
Recipe for Slow Cooker Oatmeal
1 cup of steel oats
2 1/2 cups of low fat milk
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of maple extract
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Put all ingredients in slow cooker and slow cook on low for 4-6 hours or until liquid is absorbed.
Eat right then and/or store in fridge.
Make sure when you reheat, add a couple of tablespoons of water or milk.
The amount of water or milk will depend on how thick you like it. I add raisins, biscoff spread and a banana. Yum!
