"This is such a delicious treat for the busy mornings. I love it because everyone can just grab a bowl and be on their way! I used almond milk as suggested and also doubled the oatmeal as it made it less soupy. :)"

"I used coconut milk and apple pie filling. It was really good, but too runny with the apple pie filling, but i added more oatmeal, and it was awesome."

"Really good. Made one alteration in substituting a can of apple pie filling for the apples when I doubled the recipe for my large crock pot. I also used almond milk as was suggested and everyone loved it."

"I will cut this recipe in half and put it in my little crockpot and perhaps shorten the time a bit."

"I'd love to try this. What are the chances of cutting the recipe in half, has anyone tried it with success? Editing to add....I tried it for breakfast this morning and I have to tell you this is delicious! My BIL was here from out of town and only last night did I find out he's not a big 'oatmeal fan'....gulp. But I went ahead with it anyway. My first comment was, 'it tastes like an oatmeal/raisin cookie' and I got agreement from both DH and BIL. I stuck to the recipe exactly (no need to half it) and I will also concur that (at least for my slow cooker) 7 hours was perfect. Great recipe...thanks! :)"
