I've tried a number of slow cooker oatmeal recipes from this site and hands down this is the best. We don't particularly care for steel-cut oats so I used regular oatmeal. I checked the cooker at 3 hours it was done and starting to stick a little on the bottom. It well may be that my slow cooker's "low" setting is hotter than many and maybe not using steel-cut oats had something to do with it but I would not let this cook overnight. I don't mean that comment to sound negative but I would suggest using some caution on cooking time. For our tastes it also was too sweet so I'll try cutting the brown sugar in half in the future. This is really a tasty recipe and I have some containers going into the freezer to be enjoyed later by reheating in the microwave. Read More

1. This was very quick and easy to throw together. I had some reservations but decided to follow the recipe (as close as I possibly could) for the first try. And I will not be making any changes! 2. I was concerned that the 4 c. milk (I used whole milk because no almond milk on hand) would not be enough for the 2 C. oats but the consistency turned out perfect and I will NOT change that ratio in the future 3. This milk:oats ratio yielded a very thick slightly chewy oatmeal. Exactly the way steel cut oats should be served IMHO. 4. I used 1 smallish granny smith apple and 1 large braburn apple peeled cored and sliced. 5. I toasted my walnuts as always 6. I used the full c. brown sugar and was satisfied although I typically like it a bit sweeter but you can always add more on top afterwards. 7. Thank GOODNESS I used a crock pot liner I started this at 10 pm and turned it off at 6:30 it was done stuck to the sides and needed stirring but it was not burnt. 8. Even if I had raisins on hand I would not have added them before cooking they turn out mushy and should instead be added as a garnish. THANK you for the recipe!! This will be written in to my permanent recipe book!! Read More

Overcooked in my crock pot but I expected that. It has issues. Made without the nuts because I don't like them. Next time will use a programmable crock pot and will get rid of this demon possessed one.:D Read More

I made this exactly as it was written except without walnuts. Other then the cooking time being too long it was great. I cut the cooking time to 5-6 hours on Low (eventually put in on warm). A crock pot liner is a must-have for this recipe. It still stuck to the sides of the liner--but that is due to the crock pot--not the recipe. Read More

I made this recipe just in a pot in the morning. I cooked it on very low stirring often. It took about 30 - 45 minutes to cook. It depends on how chewy you like the steel cut oats. I didn't add the raisins until the oats were finished cooking. It turned out perfect! Thanks for the recipe Ann. I will definitely be making it again. Read More

This was the first time that I had made this recipe and I won't be making it again. It came out to being a half a crock pot of mostly mushy raisins. Read More
