Ingredients

Instructions

  1. To the slow cooker - add the oatmeal, water and cinnamon.
  2. Stir well and cook on low for no more than 8 hours.
  3. If you have a timer on your crock pot and you can set the start time - that would be great. That is in case you want to sleep in and don't want to overcook the oatmeal.
  4. Double the recipe if you like!
  5. Spoon into a bowl and drizzle maple syrup over the top

Recipe Notes

.You can add soy milk or almond milk if your wish. Chopped apple sprinkled on top would be good too.

TO FREEZE:

If you've made extra it will keep in the fridge for three days. If you made extra for freezing - after the oatmeal has cooled you may freeze it in any of the methods shown in my article Preparing Food for the Freezer

To defrost - put into the refrigerator the night before and warm through in the microwave stirring every 15 seconds.
