- 2 tablespoons vegan mini-marshmallows (2 smashed with cardamom or black sesame seeds for pupils if making monster)
- 2 tablespoon agave nectar

S P O O K Y!
- The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later or use the slow cooker liner.
- Add everything except sweetener and toppings to the slow cooker.
- Cover. Cook on low over night (7 to 9 hours).
- In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should become a more uniform consistency.
- If there are still chunks of potato smash them with a fork. Add some water if it’s still a little thick.
- Taste and sweeten.
- Top with toppings and make a monster face if you’re in the mood (or just in a mood).
