Spray crockpot with a little cooking spray. Add 2 cups steel cut oats. It really needs to be steel cut, because regular will get way overcooked and gummy (gross). DO NOT USE INSTANT OATS! That would be even worse.
Add 6 cups water to the oats and if you want to add cinnamon or some brown sugar or fruit. I just do the oats and water and add my stuff when I eat it.
Put the crockpot on low for 8 to 9 hours. By morning you will have a pot of creamy goodness. (of course I forgot to take a picture of the finished product!)
But here is my bowl all fixed up with cinnamon, a touch of honey, walnuts, and fresh blueberries.
I then measure out the cooked oatmeal, one cup cooked for Sweety and 2/3 C cooked for me and put them in containers for the week. Then all you do is heat up, add your favorite stuff and you are good to go!! So good.
Today's tip: Try your slow cooker for things you may not have before. I know I don't use mine enough.
