November 27 Baked Oatmeal

I finally found a slow cooker recipe for overnight oatmeal that doesn't make the oats burn into the crock. It appears the secret ingredient is a little vegetable oil. I found the recipe in the Fix It and Forget It Big Cookbook.


  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 cups dry quick oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
Pour oil into crock and coat sides. Place remaining ingredients in slow cooker. Mix well and cook on low for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. 

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Help measure and add ingredients
  2. Crack egg
  3. Cover and turn on crock
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey
Audrey and I put this in the crock before bed and set the timer to turn on in time for breakfast. For that reason we used evaporated milk. I also decreased the oil to 1/4 cup. It turns out real good. Next time we will add dried fruit as well.

  1. I'm confused.....you say the baked oatmeal is cooked overnight? But instructions say to cook for 2 to 2 and 1/2 hours?
    Thank you~

  2. We used a timer to start the slow cooker 2 hours before breakfast. You could start it when you wake if you are an early riser.
