    I have not tried this recipe but have made oatmeal in the crockpot. Use the steel cut oats, they take much longer to cook. For 1 cup of steel cut oats, use 4 1/2 cups water. You can still add everything else that this recipe called for - 3/2/10

    I read reviews and went with the steel cut oats. 1 cup oats, 4 cups water, 1 cup skim milk. I also added 1tsp vanilla. I reduced the raisins and brown sugar by 1/2. My batch made 5 1-cup servings.To each serving, I added 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (11g protein). Delicious & healthy!!! - 3/9/11

    I looked this up elsewhere on the web. It said to be sure and use Steel-cut oats. It also suggested to put the mixture in a smaller bowl, set it inside the crockpot and to fill the crockpot with water to the bowl's height (sort of like a double boiler.) - 3/8/11

    Very tasty but was cooked in an hour. Had to add extra water. Maybe newer crock pots are hotter. I also froze a serving and when thawed the taste was as good as the original. - 1/21/08

    I can't rate it because when I woke up it was burnt to a crisp! :( Our crockpot must be extra-hot. - 10/7/07
