Reviews for Raisin Nut Oatmeal
"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."
"This was delicious. I love a good bowl of hearty oatmeal. I did use lactose free milk."
"I tried this recipe with almond milk and it was fabulous! My entire family loved it! So delicious!"
"Love it! My husband's favorite breakfast. I put in frig and he helps himself when ready to eat."
"This is soooo good! I made it for company prior to Thanksgiving, they all loved it. Very good."
"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! :)"
"I tied this and it didn't turn out too good but I'm going to try it again and tweak the amount of oatmeal and liquid. I think it just cooks too long for my cooker, so maybe I just don't need to cook it as long either. I loved the idea of waking up to breakfast being done."
"We've made this recipe several times! Oh, so yummy!For the person that's concerned with the milk being in the slow cooker, don't be. It's just fine. But if you insist that it's bad, consider using soy, almond or coconut milk. I know from personal experience that the coconut milk is excellent! Tastes like a bowl of oatmeal cookie dough!"
"I haven't tried it yet but I wanted to reply to those who don't think it's safe to leave milk in a crockpot overnight. I would think that as long as it is being gently, continuously heated, there wouldn't be a problem. I'm going to try it tonight and check it out. Hopefully, it can be cut in half as 6 servings would be way too much for me."
