Oatmeal in a Rice Cooker

Who knew you could make oatmeal in a rice cooker?  I sure didn't until yesterday as I was looking at some recipes.  I normally cook our oatmeal on the stove and have to stay nearby while it boils and then stir the oatmeal.  The thought of being able to put it in a rice cooker and click the button and walk away and come back and it is done without me babysitting it, was amazing!  I did it today and it worked and we loved it as it tasted better than the stove-top version.  It was less than 20 minutes to make this, and I think it is 20 minutes if you double it for 4 servings.

Since it was just my daughter and I, I didn't use the original recipe that serves 4, instead I cut it in half:

Serves 2

1 cup oats
2 cups water
1T butter
2T brown sugar
1/2t vanilla extract

Place oats and water in rice cooker and cook.  When finished, add in sugar, butter and vanilla extract or any other additions you prefer.

I just saw this post, and I love that idea. I will definitely I will be trying this out, because my family loves oatmeal and we do eat it often. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.
