Crock Pot Oatmeal

This recipe was passed on from a friend who spent some time in India and used to make up large batches of oatmeal to eat cold. She stayed with my mom for a week or so, making her oatmeal and my mom fell in love.

This recipe also comes from her, but is a warm version that is mostly hands-free. Enjoy!

Crock Pot Oatmeal

1 cup steel cut oats
3 cups milk (can be nonfat, whole, 1/2 & 1/2 or soy, or any combination of milk product)
Cinnamon to your liking

Add all ingredients to a crock pot and stir. Turn crock pot on LOW and cook for 6-8 hours; or cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours.

The recipe can be doubled. Additionally, feel free to any sweeteners that you like. Honey is good, as well as agave nectar (my personal favorite, though I add it to my individual servings and not the whole batch). Nuts or raisins are tasty compliments, too.
