Warm and satisfying this oatmeal really sticks to your ribs and starts the say off on the right foot. You can really be creative and change the flavors up by adding in your favorite mix ins and toppings. Dried fruits, nuts, spices the possibilities are endless. This recipe makes a good 8 servings (because I have a large family) and is one of my go-to recipes for Sunday mornings when everyone is home. However on the weekdays when it is just the me and the three little kids I cut this recipe in half and cook it in my 3 quart crock-pot. I just start it the night before and wake up to breakfast already done. It’s like having a little kitchen fairy who cooks in the middle of the night. Which is lovely, because I hate cooking breakfast!
In the picture I used dried cranberries, chopped pecans and topped my oatmeal with a little honey and cream (decadent!)
