Slow Cooked Oatmeal

I’m so so so excited about this post!  Mainly because it is the first thing I made in my dorm room, but also because it is really tasty!  It was super easy to make, it cooked while I was sleeping, AND kept in the refrigerator all week so I got 4 meals out of it.  What a deal!  I highly recommend that everyone tries this recipe out.  I like my oatmeal a bit on the sweet side, so this amount of sugar was perfect for my tastes.  You could always omit the sugar all together if you would like.

Makes 4 Servings
