Found this website with 6 recipes. I have tried the Banana-Cocoa and the Mango-Almond, both were great.

Yes, added the chia seeds. I have a Sprout's Market nearby and can buy them bulk.

OK....I have found one thing I will never add again. I use Bee Pollen in the morning. Normally I don't taste it in smoothies and protein shakes. It has a funky aftertaste in the refrigerator oatmeal. Just a warning to Bee Pollen users. :)

For quite some time now, I've been making oatmeal in my crockpot overnight. I have one of the Hamilton Beach ones that came with 3 different size crocks, 2-4-6. I use the 2 quart to make my recipe, sometimes I double it with the 4 quart.

1 cup steel cut oats - available at an grocery store, but if you can find them bulk in a health food store like I did, soooo much cheaper
4 cups of water
1/2 t salt



I guess this saves the calories from the yogurt and almond milk (but doesn't get the nutrients); I have been eating the refrigerated stuff all week and enjoying it very much. It reminds me of muesli.

How long does cooked oatmeal stay good? It's just me, but I do have a crockpot.

OP, thank you so much for this post. I just finished eating my breakfast of fridge-oatmeal; I made it last night with milk, oats, chia seeds, greek yogurt, 1 tsp honey, 1 tb unsweetened cocoa powder, and 1/2 fresh banana. Super super tasty! And I'm not a big hot oatmeal fan, but I loved this. I especially love that it took virtually no time to prepare and there was no "thinking" involved this morning (I am not a morning person, ugh). So thanks! This is about to become a household staple, I'm sure!

bump. can you make the oatmeal with water? and what would be the ratio of oats:water? also: instead of using powdered pb, can you use regular and do you mix it in before you refridgerate it or after?

Just a warning to people who do not like Greek yogurt (ME!)...I had read that you could not taste it and oh gosh I could REALLY taste it. That is my only complaint, and I believe I saw where you could use regular yogurt instead so I may try that and see if it's any better.

I really wanted to like it. :(

I think you can use any combination for the "liquids". I've seen it since the original post, using all milk...half applesauce. I don't think the yogurt is a mandatory liquid, I was under the impression that the greek yogurt just upped the protein.
