Great served with milk.
What could be better than waking up to the fresh aroma of a hearty morning meal wafting through the house? With aid of a Crockpot, it's easy to give the entire family a hot breakfast, regardless of when they drag themselves out of bed.

This is the best oatmeal I've ever tasted. I can even get my 2 year old son to eat it! I double the mixture but instead of using walnuts or almonds I put in half a cup (even though I doubled the other ingredients) of ground flaxseed, and added a bit more milk. I cooked it on warm for 8 hours and came out perfect!!

I like this recipe a lot! I have a large oval crock-pot so I put all my ingredients into a smaller well greased Pyrex bowl which I put into the crock-pot. Next, I filled the crock-pot with enough water to come up to the level of the oatmeal mixture in the Pyrex dish. I set it on low and cooked for 4 to 5 hours. Clean up is a breeze! Try it, it works and the oatmeal's texture is like a souffle.

I doubled the batch and cooked it on warm for 10 hours in my crock pot. It was way too done and I had to wake up every couple hours to add more milk. It could have been completely done in two hours in the warm setting in my crock pot. Not impressed :-/

Almost perfect. The bottom was a little bit crusty after 8 hours, but that was no big deal. Other than that, it tasted great and had a nice texture. Maybe just 7 hours of cooking next time.

I have used a variation of this for years. I double the ingredients and I cook mine on the warm setting. I leave it on for about 10 to 12 hours. It comes out perfectly.

You can use Quick Oatmeal, just make sure you leave the Crockpot on Warm over night. I double the recipe and added another 1/2 cup of milk because it didn't look like enough liquid. And don't forget to spray the sides of the Crockpot with Pam before you put in the ingredients. With all the notes I provided it turned out great and not to much liquid was leftover. Otherwise it was wonderful to wake up to this on a rainy morning in Portland, OR.

Cooking time too long. I have a very good crockpot and the oatmeal was burnt on the side of the crockpot by morning.

This recipe was great! I read the comments and only cooked it for 4 1/2 hours. I have had my crockpot for at least 5 years, so I don't know if that is considered new or old. LOL. I used water instead of milk but, I will add at least 1 cup less of water next time, because I like my oatmeal thicker.

I found this same recipe in a crock pot cookbook. I made the recipe during the day and noticed that it looked done but I was planning on sticking to the recipes 8 hour time frame. At 6 1/2 hours it started smelling like it was burning so I turned it off. It was good but I'm sure it would have been better if I turned if off earlier. I didn't double the recipe and it was just enough for my husband and I. I wish I would have found these reviews first.

Turned out delicious! I read the comments first. I know my crockpot cooks hotter than others, and I didn't want to get up in the middle of the night to turn it on. So I left mine on warm for 7 hours, then turned to to low for 30 min. before eating. It was perfect. Not burnt or mushy!

This is a fantastic way to help me eat sensibly by baking up a batch of this and dividing the results into portion size cups for the week. On the way to work, I just grab one out of the fridge, top with some sliced strawberries and eat it about mid-morning at room temp. My 4-1/2 quart oval crockpot cooked completely on low in about 4 hours. I also prefer to add the nuts and/or raisins at the time I eat it. Tried it with steel cut oats once but it needed additional milk. Clean up has not been a problem at all, but then I cook it during the day and not overnight.

Next time I'll make it with water instead of milk. The milk scorched.

I have a new oval crockpot and my oatmeal was done in 3 hours, I should have read the comments before I made it and put it on at midnight, next time read comments beforehand. I doubled up the ingredients and put almonds and walnuts, dried blueberrys, dried mixed berries, and bananna, no apple.

USE A CROCK POT COOKIN BAG! Well, tried this receipe last night - used steel cut oats and followed directions on that box and just dolled it up with apples, bananas, brown sugar, cin. and butter - turned out good... HUGE clean-up saver, USE A CROCK POT BAG!!!!!! Find them by the foil and plastic wrap in the grocery store, even if it over cooks you have a quick and easy clean up! Off to work? No mess, just toss the bag away! Saves a ton of time!! Next time I will try old fashioned oats! Steel cut oats are ok, but they are kinda gritty and my kids were not to impressed with it all!

This is a great recipe. I made this for my preschoolers when we talked about the three bears and they LOVED it! However, if you want to cook it for 8 hours, you really need to use Steel Cut oats. They are harder to cook, and even harder to find.

I made this for my co-workers for a staff breakfast everyone loved it. -Tami

The secret to perfect oatmeal is only cooking for 4 1/2 hours. I am so glad that I read all of the comments. I prepared this recipe (X 6) for a breakfast at school and it was a hit! I'm sharing the recipe with others and will prepare this recipe often. It is now a favorite!!
