People keep suggesting overnight crockpot oats as a time saver but regular whole oats are the easiest, quickest breakfast going. I never, ever stand around boiling and stirring them because that results in a big ole globby blob and if you want that it's faster just to use quick oats.
I prefer whole oats that have retained their shape and some chewy texture, not like a dry raw oat of course but not mush either.

Add to a pot of boiling water grated apple and/or cubed pear, raisins, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, a dollop of butter and a dash of salt.


Stir whole oats into the pot, I use so much that there is really barely any water left at all. Stir, bring it up to a boil again, shut off the heat, put on the lid and let sit until the water is absorbed.


This is usually only about 10 mins. By the time the kids get downstairs, their hands washed and the table set it's all ready.
See? It's perfect!

You are so welcome. I make a huge pot of them every time then pack the left overs as squished as possible in a container in the fridge. The next day it is quite firm so can be sliced and fried in butter or oil in a pan. It gets a lovely crispy crust, the kids love it even more that way.
The whole oats are what I use for fruit crumble too. It is a low sugar version the kids will eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, lol. Anytime at all. It's nice warm or cold.

No I haven't heard of that. Do you eat it cold? We don't use a microwave so I am not sure how it would get heated up...

Yes! You put the oats and whatever extras in a mason jar with the milk. Shake it up and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

I'll try it sometime, thanks. The kids do prefer it warm but they take it cold in a thermos for lunch now and then.
