Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add a couple spoonfuls of almond or peanut butter when serving!
  • Use 1 to 2 cups dried fruit of your choice. You can even use a mixture. Cranberries, cherries, and figs are some of my favorites.
  • Depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal, you can omit the brown sugar entirely or replace it with maple syrup.
  • Try pumpkin puree in place of the applesauce for another variation.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Good flavor. Used honey instead of brown sugar. We made different versions: we tried cherries, raisins, and goji berries. One note: the finished oats came out stuck to the edge of the pot, so a...

Husband made this recipe. It was our first attempt at overnight oatmeal. Enjoyed it. A couple of things. Use almond milk. Add the applesauce. Hold the sugar. It does become sweet so if you prefe...

I just made this last night, and it came out great! I did add unsweetened applesauce, and I'm glad that I did for the added moisture. I was a little worried after reading reviews about it burnin...

I made this for 12 people and it turned out absolutely delicious! I skipped the cherries but use the exact measurements for everything else. Will definitely make this again in the future - GREAT...

We love this oatmeal. I use the oats, water and a pinch of salt only. In the morning when we are ready to eat it I add a little milk or cream and stir it up. This allows for it to be very creamy...

There is way too much liquid in this recipe. It was a running mess. I ended up adding 1 ½ cups of quick oats which helped tremendously. The flavor is great. And, the process is a good one. Also,...
