I've made it a few times for dd and myself, we both enjoy it. Your timeline sounds fine

Edited to add..lol..if you add fruit the night before, you will end up with colored oatmeal, lol. We added blueberries the first time and were a bit surprised to find purple oatmeal in the morning!

Sounds like a good idea! I like steel cut oats but don't usually want to take the time to properly prepare them for breakfast.

I would highly recommend using only steel oats and I put the fruit in about 1/2 way. We love it and have it often.

We do this all the time - make a large batch once a week and it gives us leftovers for a few days. I also highly recommending only doing this with steel cut oats. And whatever you do, do NOT use quick oats! It just gets all mushy and a mess. For the liquid, we do about 1/3 milk and 2/3 water (so if using 3 cups oats, we do 2 c milk plus 4 c water; 2 cups oats gets 1 c plus 1/3c milk, 2c plus 2/3c water). We don't usually add fruit at all until the morning. DS likes frozen wild blueberries mixed into his, while DH likes to add plain yogurt and fresh fruit.

I have tried this and I actually got the recipe on the budget board. I didnt use milk however, since had to be on a special diet before radiation for my cancer.

I did add apples the night before too. I put some cinnamon too

It turned out really well considering I hate oatmeal. Made the house smell yummy.

I haven't tried it but it sounds good. Wanted to share another quick overnight oatmeal recipe...this one is cold.

Overnight Oats

-Equal parts oats, yogurt, and any type of milk of your choosing. (I do 1 cup of each for 2 big portions)
-Dash of vanilla
-Cut up fruit of your choice (I like sliced apples, banana and halved grapes)

Mix in a bowl and let it sit in fridge overnight.

In the morning, I like to mix mine with something sweet...a little honey or jam. Eat cold.

I've cooked it on the stovetop using apple juice as my liquid. I just might try it in the crockpot too!!

I almost always do steel cut oats in the crack pot. Throw in a little dried fruit about half-way through...yummy!
For the love of Disney...

Dh does this with apple juice, spices and steel cut oats. It's OK. It comes out mushier (if something as mushy as oatmeal can get mushier). It's like most of the texture is gone.

I'm not an oatmeal lover, but can eat it with the apple juice. I think it is better done on the stovetop, but we don't have time for that in the morning.

That timing works. But stick with steel cut oats as they were made for long cooking times and are healthiest. I do 1 cup oats and 4 cups water in a small crockpot.
