I made this recipe yesterday and I think it is wonderful! I did do a few tiny changes but I think that if I had made none at all it still would be great....first and formost, I think that this recipe should be made during the day the first time. Slow cookers vary so much that it is a good idea to be able to keep an eye on it. I know that my old slow cooker would have probably burned this recipe, as it was my new one worked out perfectly as directed. The only changes I made was to use 3 apples (instead of 2) I added 1/2 cup of raisins, and lastly I grated in the rind of 1 lemon. I ate this cold for breakfast and I felt like I was eating a wonderful, delicious dessert.


So good. My kids ate leftovers after dinner the same night. I will use less water next time


I would have given it a 4.5 but I didn't have that option. This was tastey. I did change it a bit to use what I had on hand. I used homemade apple butter, I had previously canned, and omitted the extra sugar. I also only had one granny smith apple so I used it and one gala. It has a nice apple tartness to it. When eating it, my husband and I added a bit of splenda while 3 children choose agave and 1 choose white sugar. I like my oatmeal a little thinker so next time (and their will be a next time) I will use a little less water. Otherwise, yummy start to a Friday fall morning.
