I’ve been doing lots of experimenting lately with slow cooker oatmeal flavors.
Some have been a huge hit. And others weren’t blog-worthy at all.

However, these 6 recipes are all fantastic! I tend to like things sweet, so if your sweet tooth isn’t as big feel free to cut the sugar.
I’ve also got two tips on using your slow cooker for oatmeal, so keep scrolling after the recipes.
