This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Food Prep and Preservation.

In this Badge Bit, you will cook overnight oats with a crock pot.



Here are some overnight oats recipes:
 - Cinnamon Overnight Oatmeal
 - Basic Overnight Oatmeal
 - Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats
 - German Chocolate Cake Overnight Oats
 - Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats

Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal



Overnight Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal



Overnight Banana Walnut Oatmeal



Upside Down Pineapple Oatmeal



*please note that this last recipe was cooked for 4 hours at high heat, which does not count as "overnight"
*however, if this recipe was done for 6 hours at medium to low heat it might get similar results and be "overnight"

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - at least 1/2 cup of dried oats
  - the oats are cooked without the use of a microwave
  - the oats are cooked for a minimum of six hours

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
  - post a rough recipe of how you prepared your oats
  - post a picture of your dried oats
  - post a picture of your oats getting cooked n a crock pot (with a timestamp or watch)
  - post a picture of your cooked oats in a crock pot (with a timestamp or watch)

I used 1 cup of oats and 3 cups of water. I added a chopped apple, a pinch of cinnamon and I tossed in some sliced almonds. It was good.

Ingredients: 4 C oats, 4 C Almond milk, 4 C water, 3 apples, raisins, brown sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, ginger, pinch of salt.
Mixed the brown sugar, cinnamon and apples. Adeed oats, poured liquids and and generous pinch of salt.
Next time I'll leave the crock pot on warm instead of low but it still was a hit to start the day.

Hi. I have a question. If I do not use a crock pot, but I keep my oats warm in a 'hay box', does it count too for the BB?
I am used to only soak my raw 'muesli' (mix of oat and other grains and raisins) in water during the night, and then add some yoghurt and fruits for breakfast.

This is rolled oats cooked in an ancient crock pot .

I have actually not done this before, if I were cooking for more people it would likely save time in the morning. I put 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 1/4 cups water and some homegrown raisins in the crockpots, turned the switch to low, and left it for 8 hours while I slept.  It was slightly dried out on top, but not much, likely due to such a small amount.  The raisins came out very good, this slow steam may be superior for dried fruit.  The outside of the crock pot was warm to the touch and it was on for 8 hours, so this is using more power than I would want just for rolled oats.  Probably would be good for beans or broth.  I ate the oatmeal for breakfast with some whole milk.
