    I made this last night but was only going to have 7 hours to cook it. I put it on for 6 hours at low and my crockpot automatically goes to keep warm. I also added 1 tsp vanilla for cooking and then added chopped pecans to serve. No sweetner was needed. This is the best overnight oatmeal i've had - 9/20/14

    I have been making this every 2 or 3 days for about 2 weeks. I add a 1/4 C pure maple syrup while cooking, but otherwise... My 2 year old devours it happily and so do I - I could live on it! - 3/13/10

    I needed to use some apples up and this was a great recipe to try. I cooked it on high in my crock pot and it was done in about 2 hours. I did add a tsp. of regular syrup and added nuts prior to eating it. I thought it was really good. Great breakfast oatmeal idea. Thanks! - 2/15/10

    I love this recipe! I made it with pears instead of apples (just because I had a bunch at home) and with almond milk (instead of regular) -- turned out great. Even my husband who normally does not like oatmeal loved it. - 1/23/12

    The mix of flavors was perfect! I did not need to add any sweetener. I thought 1 TBLS of cinnamon was a misprint but since no one else commented on it, I went with it and it was just fine. My preference is for a creamier oatmeal so next time will try adding more liquid. It is very filling. - 3/3/11
