was super excited to try this, but oh boy when i got up in the morning. burnt…i think i will have to double this recipe next time. My corckpot may be to big. looking forward to trying again.
Lady Katie says
Oh Gosh that stinks!. I truely believe that some crock-pots vary in temperature. I know my large one seems to cook quicker than my smaller one. Was it burnt bad or just slightly? maybe you could adjust the time down and see.
Andrea Myers says
Same here! I didn’t read the notes ahead of time! haha. My husband was so looking forward to it and it was burnt all up. Large Crock Pot and next time I’ll double. Hope that works!
Whenever I want to use a recipe like this, I ALWAYS try it during the day first, so see how long it actually takes in MY crockpot. I have made overnight oatmeal before, and it only takes 4 hours max on low (only 2 hours on high) in my crockpot.
Would steel cut oats work in this recipe?
Lady Katie says
Yes it would.
I just made this recipe for a breakfast potluck. I am so glad I read the comments before I tried it! I quadrupled the recipe, and made it in a large crockpot, cooking it on high for two hours. It came out great, but I did have to stir it every 15 mins to keep it from sticking and burning. I mixed raisins and craisins half and half and put in some real maple syrup in place of some of the brown sugar. It was a huge hit! Lots of people asked for the recipe. It did dry out over the two hour period when it was being served, so,I would suggest adding adding extra water or milk if it is not going to be served or eaten immediately.
I tried this Crockpot Overnight Raisin Apple Oatmeal and it came out great. I am so happy. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Thanks for the great recipe. In reviewing the comments, here are a few thoughts:
– this recipe works better as an 8 hour overnight adventure using steel cut oats. I tripled the recipe, and 7 to 8 hours was perfect.
– for steel cut oats, the ratio of liquid to oats is 4 cups to 1 cup. Therefore, I used 4 cups milk to 1 cup steel cut oats.
– always thoroughly spray or grease your slow cooker before adding ingredients and turning on to avoid the oats sticking to the sides or burning.
– if the end result is too thick, just add milk and stir to match your preferences
– this stores well in the fridge for a few days. Just add milk to thin out to your preferences.
– this is a huge favourite in our house in cold weather. You can switch it to make peaches and cream (add the peaches 45 mins before serving), leave out the apples for raisins and cinnamon, etc.
