Okay, this is a great idea and my kids love it, but I've made a few modifications that make it "really good." First of all, I use 1 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats and 1 cup of steel-cut oats. I use 8 cups of water. Peel two apples (I used Braeburn) and add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and about 4 teaspoons of butter. (The first time I made it, I melted the butter and swirled it around the crockpot to help with the sticking everyone mentioned -- and it didn't stick. But, the second time I made it, I just added it in with everything and it STILL didn't stick.) I think my crockpot runs really hot, even on low, because it was done after 4-5 hours (and was overcooked/mushy/gluey the first time when I cooked it 8 hours). My kids absolutely LOVE this and I'm so glad I found something healthy to prepare for breakfast that doesn't require a lot of work in the morning!
