This recipe for Slow Cook­er Pur­ple Sweet Pota­to Oat­meal was shared by Face­book friend Kathy. (her web­site is We loved it so much that we had to share this great Oat­meal recipe for Hal­loween.
S P O O K Y! 🙂

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

NOTE: The good folks at make their Pur­ple Sweet Pota­to Oat­meal into a Spooky Face for Hal­loween… ! Awe­some!
