Slow Cooker Mixed Berry Oatmeal

Every since I was a little girl, I have always loved oatmeal. I loved just plain oatmeal, chocolate oatmeal, fruit mixed in and instant oatmeal packets.

You know what I am talking about here – the instant oatmeal packets! They are quick and easy, but not the tastiest or the freshest kind of oatmeal out there.

Ever since I tried making my own from old-fashioned oats, I have been in love. They are just as easy, and guess what? They are even easier on the wallet too. :)

Today, I am going to share you my favorite way to cook my oatmeal – long and slow in the slow cooker/crock-pot. I always add in the berries when I am adding the oats and water. It always seems to make the oatmeal really flavorful. In other words, amazing!

You will need to have old-fashioned oats for this recipe. I haven’t tried the instant oats before in the slow cooker. I am pretty sure it would need less time to cook. Just not sure.

I like to add the brown sugar after it has finished cooking, just my personal preference. You can always add it when you add everything in. Wouldn’t hurt a thing. I forgot to mention you will add need vanilla extract and frozen mixed berries.

    Sounds divine. I’m the only oatmeal eater in the house. How long will this keep in the fridge? Trying to eat healthier and this sure fits the bill. I found you through An Extraordinary Day Slow cooking is my fave so you have a new friend. :-)
