Oatmeal Cooked in a Rice Cooker

"I got very bored with standing around for 15 or 20 minutes every morning, stirring oatmeal. Wasted time! I kept thinking, "I could be on 'Zaar instead!" Then I came up with this idea, and now I am."

Ready In:


  • 1 14 cups large flake rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons wheat bran
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 13 1/3 cup other dried fruit or 1/3 cup fresh fruit (optional)
  • 2 12 cups water


  • Put all the ingredients in a rice cooker.
  • Turn it on.
  • Go away, and come back in 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Stir once, as there may be a little moisture on top, and serve up.
  • Be sure to use a wooden spoon.
  • Yum!
  • I like mine sprinkled with a little ground flaxseed, sugar and light cream.

    I made this this morning and it came out perfectly. I used Bob's Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats and the consistency was absolutely perfect. And the rice cooker and bowls were very easy to clean. I'll definitely be incorporating this into our busy mornings. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    Last night I made rice in my rice cooker and I wondered about oatmeal. Thanks for the recipe! It worked perfectly! Last night I measured out the dry ingredients and this morning I only had to add water and turn the rice cooker on. I have a very simple rice cooker from Walmart ($20) which only has a toggle switch for cook/warm. It has always cooked perfect rice and the oatmeal worked great too! There was water standing on top of the oatmeal when it was done but never fear! Just give it a stir and the texture is perfect. It's thick, not soupy. If you like it thinner you could always add some milk.

    Very easy and delicious, thank you for a great recipe! I added raisins to mine and it came out great.


I love to garden, both perennials and vegetables. I am always looking for recipes to fiddle with, especially good simple vegetable dishes. I try to use organic ingredients as much as possible.
