    My oatmeal was to runny. Could I use less water next time?

    No, but you can go to this website http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php and it’s SUPER EASY to copy/paste the recipe from our site and you’ll instantly get the breakdown. I think there’s at least 8 servings in this recipe.

    Yvonne,
    Oh nooo! So sorry it did not work for you. It is no bueno when a recipe does not work out. Even though you had it on low, your cooker may still be cooking too hot. I know, not very helpful. It is kind of a brand thing…there is not a consistency between brands. Please don’t give up on crockin’. Look at this oatmeal recipe…we even have a video that goes with it to demonstrate what we did.

    I USED MY CROCKPOT FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. I TRIED THE STEEL CUT OATMEAL AND I WAS SO EXCITED TO GET UP THIS MORNING ONLY TO BE VERY DISAPPOINTED. IT DIDNT WORK. IT WAS A HUGE SOUPY MESS. THE BROWN SUGAR AND HONEY HAD BURNED ALL AROUND THE EDGE OF THE CROCK POT. THE OATMEAL WAS SOUPY AND AND THICK LAYER WAS BURNED ON THE BOTTOM. I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DID WRONG. I MADE SURE IT WAS SET ON LOW. I HAVE A RIVAL 7 QT CROCKPOT. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT! I AM A LITTLE TURNED OFF FROM USING THE CROCKPOT. THANKS.

    I LOVE this oatmeal, my family not so much. My kids want it without the nuts and fruit, but my husband still likes the good old fashioned Quaker Oats. That’s okay though – I LOVE IT.

  9. Sharon T.

    I used a 5 qt pot and it was not burned but it was soupy. Has anyone tried either more oats or less water and if so, did it help? Thanks.

    How many servings and what is the serving size. As I diabetic I need to know this so that I can determine the carbs and fiber per serving.

  11. Laura P.

    I’m making this on my stove w/ my 3 y/o as I type. I cut the water in half. My hubby is going to try it too. LOL Thanks for the tips. Yes, I think my crock pot is too hot.

    God Bless,
    Laura

    Laura, sorry you ended up with soupy, burned oatmeal…that’s a bummer. Sounds like you need to cut down on your water and cooking time. Newer slow cookers tend to cook hot so we have to adjust to accommodate the cooker.

  13. Laura P.

    Oh I’m glad I checked..I thought I was the only one who had liquid oatmeal.

    Even cooking on low , I noticed that it burnt on the bottom. Any way to prevent this?

  14. lori k.

    i made this last night i really think this recipe should be adjusted to two cups of oatmeal , the taste was great but it was soup had add more oatmeal in morning and microwave to make thick.

  15. Monica B.

    I’ve found that it seems quite liquidy while in the pot, but once served and cooled a bit it seems a lot thicker.

    I usually omit the butter and sugar, as we like to add our own maple syrup. I don’t think that would make a difference to the consistency though.

    I made this to bring to a womens breakfast this morning. I doubled the recipe so 2 cups oatmeal 8 cups water..so on this morning it’s like soup :( I added 2 more cups of oats (the old fashioned kind) I hope it works, It smells delish!
    Anybody else have this prob?

  17. Megan P.

    I need a lot of protein in the morning so I made this with soy milk. I used steel cut oatmeal. I added 3 scoops of vanilla protein powder,increased the milk to 1 cup and the water to 5 cups. I also added craisins and apricots. Fabulous!!! I have a large crock pot so it didn’t fill it to exactly half. The top was crusty this morning and I am wondering if I could put a piece of parchment over it during cooking?
