Thanks for all the advice! Planning on making a big batch for tonight and having it this week.

I've never done this, but I understand you can make oatmeal in the slow cooker. Google it and you'll find the recipe. Let us know if it works!

I do that all the time. It tastes just fine!!!

I actually don't cook ours. I put in a large bowl and add the water and by morning it has softened and can be quickly heated (you just want to get it warm and take the chill out) and ate. We avoid the slime/goo that way.

One of my favorites:

I put some raw (old-fashioned) rolled oats in a deep bowl, add apple juice until it's just level with the oats, and let it sit overnight. It can sit for days, too. When I want to eat some I just stir it a bit and put plain yogurt on top. Yum.
Optional: you can add nuts and/or raisins. You can warm it up in the microwave.
