Crock Pot Oatmeal



When I was little, our Mom used to make oatmeal by cooking it all night at a very low temperature.  My sister Doreen told me about Crock Pot Oatmeal during the holidays and we had it this morning.  It's a winner! 
Here is the recipe I made which calls for 1 cup of oatmeal and 3 1/2 cups water amongst other things - like 1 tablespoon of cinnamon which is a little too much for my taste. I found another recipe here which calls for 2 cups of oatmeal to 4 cups water which will no doubt make for more consistency.  I found another recipe that calls for flax seed which would be a nutritious add-in. 
We added a little maple syrup and half and half to top it off.  Chopped pecans and dried cranberries would be delicious as well.
Two nights ago, 8 inches of snow fell and today we are sitting at -23 degrees Celsius.  A perfect morning for Crock Pot Oatmeal.

Love,

Stella
