  • I haven't tried this recipe but I make crockpot oatmeal every week. I don't use instant oats. That doesn't make sense to cook it for that long and use instant. I realize they wantt the apples cooked to soft, maybe try adding the instant in the last 30 minutes?

  • It did not work at all. The oatmeal was burned and whatever was not burned was very mushy. I don't think oatmeal can be cooked in the crockpot. It was definitely worth the try.

  • This doesn't work as a crockpot recipe for overnight. I put it on low at midnight and it was way past done at 5 am, very mushy. (Tasty, but overly mushy.) I would recommend that the ingredients be prepared the night before and then be cooked on top of the stove in the morning. The oatmeal will have more texture also.

  • For some reason the rest of my comment did not show up! So I forgot to add the butter, but I never missed it. I also used Splenda brand brown sugar in place of the real stuff. So, if you're watching what you put in your mouth, skip the butter and use Splenda brown sugar or something similar. Oh, and the apple that I put in the oatmeal had a slight crunch to it, PERFECT!

  • Ok, I tried this last night and the result was wonderful! I can see though how it could be dry by morning. I have a Hamilton Beach crockpot that has a 'warm' setting on it, after reading Breck01's comment I decided to use the 'warm' temp instead of 'low'. It actually turned out so moist and it did not burn at all. I prepared this dish the afternoon before, only combining the dry ingredients first and then to add the butter and milk right before going to bed. Well........I forgot to add the

  • I tried this recipe, I don't think that it should cook in the crockpot as long as recommended. I think if I try to make it again, that I will only leave it for a few hours. It was so burnt on the inside of my crockpot that I spent half an hour just to get it out. Will definately try again, just a shorter time.

  • This sounded so good!! I guess some of these recipes need instruction as to what size of crock pot to use. I have two kinds - large oval and large round. I used the large round and it was burnt in the a.m. You must need to use a small crock pot?? Live and Learn! :0)
