I often use the weekends to prepare food for the week. Yes, I have even made larger batches of oatmeal on the weekend to reheat during the week.

I don’t like the packages of instant oatmeal, they have a lot of extra ingredients in them, and they also have a lot of sugar. So I like to purchase a better quality of oatmeal and prepare it in a large batch.

Large Batch Oatmeal

For this large batch oatmeal recipe, you could make it on your stovetop or in a multi cooker. I know not everyone has a full kitchen to prepare food in, and an appliance like this could easily take care of a lot of your food preparation needs.

For this bat, I opted to make apple cinnamon oatmeal. Fresh apples and cinnamon are a delicious pairing. Fresh apples give oatmeal a natural sweetness and savory cinnamon balances it beautifully.

If you are looking for more types and flavors of oatmeal recipes, I recommend the Oatrageous Oatmeals cookbook.

This week I have been testing out the Cosori Multi-Cooker. I was sent this appliance to review. Note all opinions are my own.

If you are unfamiliar with Multi-Cookers, they have been around for a while. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have an infinite amount of space in my kitchen, so I have to really think through small kitchen appliances very well.

I love appliances like multi-cookers because they can do so many different things. A multi-cooker can:

  • Steam
  • Slow Cook
  • Saute
  • Boil
  • Brown
  • Bake

I tested this multi-cooker by making hard-cooked eggs by steaming them, making macaroni and cheese, and large batch oatmeal. I have been very pleased with the variety of food preparation with this multi-cooker.

I could easily envision using a multi-cooker for the holidays. With large gatherings, it’s hard to figure out who is going to use the stove and in what order.

With a cooker like this, you could easily make some mashed potatoes, other vegetables, and heat up soups and cocoa. I have actually brought a device like this to a potluck and finished cooking my food while at my potluck.

    Hi can you please clarify for me do the apples get added when the oatmeal begins to boil or with the brown sugar the last 3-4minutes? This sounds delicious.

    I think that’s what I might do — make a batch and I can eat it all week for breakfast. I did have a question about the apples. Do the apples get really mushy after sitting in the refrigerator for several days and do they turn brown? Thanks.

    I never thought about cooking a bunch of oatmeal at once, I have done that this week, and I think this tastes better than instant oatmeal.
