Slow Cooker Oatmeal


Oatmeal is my breakfast of choice, and I can eat it every morning. The only thing is some mornings I don't feel like standing over the stove and stirring. It's days like this when I put my slow cooker to work. I add oats and water and cook for a few hours. Once ready, I pour in milk, maple syrup, a little butter, raisins, and then give it a good stir. I like to serve it with a bit more butter, a few chopped pecans, a drizzle of syrup, and a healthy sprinkle of cinnamon. Slow Cooker Oatmeal is simple, delicious, and a perfect way to start the day. The best part is the leftovers taste great the next morning, too.
