Ok, i've tried the crock pot oatmeal recipes a couple times now. I can't recommend them. They're really mushy and part always burns. Perhaps it's just my crock pot. I have an oval 3 quart. Regardless, here's the one i made last night. It had good flavor.
1 cup McCann's Irish Oatmeal
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 cups water
1 cups skim milk
2 TB orange juice concentrate
1 tsp dried orange zest
¼ c. Splenda
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla
1 large granny Smith apple, chopped (7oz)
In 3 quart slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat. Cover and let cook for 8 to 9 hours.
Stir and remove to serving bowls. This method works best if started before you go to bed. This way your oatmeal will be finished by morning.
