We’ve been really enjoying waking up to warm oatmeal lately. I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of flavors. Some have been blog-worthy and some not.
This Slow Cooker Cranberry Orange Oatmeal though is one that’s definitely worth sharing. The citrus flavor with the sweet-tart cranberry taste is a great way to start the day.
Number of Servings:
I’ve gotten several questions about the number of servings for these slow cooker oatmeal recipes. My recipes use 1 cup of steel cut oats and I get around 6 servings from it. Sometimes, it’s more than 6 servings.
That does seem like a lot from just 1 cup of oats, but it’s what we’ve found from making them many times. The oatmeal box lists 1 cup of oats as making 4 servings. We eat fairly large bowls of oatmeal, but maybe others eat even more? I’m not sure.
Your experience may vary, but my family gets about 6 servings from these recipes. I’d love to know how many servings you’re getting.
