Overnight Oatmeal

I made this the other day but it was really mushy so I’ve decreased the milk to 1 cup instead of the 1 1/2 cups called for in the original recipe.  And i’m wondering about adding some orange juice…

Overnight Oatmeal

1 cup McCann’s Irish Oatmeal
1 cup dried cranberries
3 cups water
1 cups skim milk
2 TB orange juice concentrate
1 tsp dried orange zest
¼ c. Splenda
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla
1 large granny Smith apple, chopped (7oz)

In 3 quart slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat. Cover and let cook for 8 to 9 hours.
Stir and remove to serving bowls. This method works best if started before you go to bed. This way your oatmeal will be finished by morning.
