Overnight Oatmeal Bar

Make oatmeal exciting with an oatmeal bar. Put enticing toppings, such as brown sugar, dried cranberries, chopped nuts, shredded coconut and maple syrup, in an array of stackable plastic containers. Make oatmeal every night in the slow cooker, and every morning you can whip the tops off the topping to let kids dress their own bowls of oatmeal with their favorite flavorings. Slow-cooked oatmeal is much creamier than the stovetop variety and many kids prefer the smoother texture.
