Thursday night we tried something new: Crockpot Oatmeal. I never think to use my crockpot enough, especially for breakfast but I’m glad we did! I started looking at a whole bunch of recipes and ended up combining several to come up with this…the bad part is I am really bad about exact amounts and remembering what I did (I know, cover your eyes, Robin) but I think this is pretty close:
I think the main thing is to cook it on low so it doesn’t get all porridge-like. I added more water than normal and the consistency was good. If you find it too think in the morning, add some more water or milk. Also, beware of the mini crockpots. I’m not sure if they all have adjustable temps and you might wake up with an oatmeal brick in your crockpot.
I like a little crunch to my oatmeal, so I would have definitely added the walnuts if I had had them. I don’t even like oatmeal all that much, but I did like this (said the pregnant person.)
I’m off to make blueberry pancakes this morning, as it is National Blueberry Pancake Day. Not lying. I wouldn’t lie to you…and neither would Google.
Happy Monday, peeps.
