Overnight Fruit and Nut Oatmeal for the Crock Pot

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Easy to do overnight to have ready for the morning. Oats thicken on standing and can be kept in the refrigerator for the next day or two. Just add milk and stir until it loosens, then reheat in the microwave.

We eat steel-cut oats all the time, but this tasted very strange. We decided it might be the dried fruits permeating (and overwhelming) the flavor of the oats. Next time I think we would keep the dried fruits aside, adding them in the morning, and then just giving them a few minutes to plump. I do like the ease of doing it overnight in the crockpot.
