Thanks! I have a large and a small/med. sized slow cooker. If it'll keep in the refrigerator, then this will be good. The significant other MIGHT try some lol. Particularly if I put a dash of brown sugar and cinnamon in for him.

I use both kinds. I make it in my small crock pot - so I use 1c of regular oats (not quick cook) OR 3/4 c steel cut. I think liquid works out to about 2 1/2 - 3c with that amount of oats.
I make that amount and it serves about 2 people. I keep everything forever in my fridge so not worried about it going bad. If you're the only one eating it, however, I would use a baby crock pot, or make less (if you have a giant crock pot you can put the food in a ceramic casserole in your cooker to make a smaller amount).

Love making overnight oatmeal - I feel so virtuous and no work! There are so many variations to add with the liquid and add ins too!!

I have never tried slow cooker oatmeal, I make mine in the microwave. The old fashioned oats take a bit longer but are still pretty quick and tasty.
I have wanted to make the slow cooker recipe, but it's only me that eats them.

I want to give this a go, but before I do - can I use Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, or should I get some steel cut ones (I just have the old fashioned on hand at the moment). How long would the leftovers keep in the refrigerator (could it even be frozen)? I'm pretty much going to be the only one eating it, so I don't want anything to go to waste. Having breakfast on hand for the week, would be nice though!
