pinbusted recipe: crockpot apple oatmeal

What a letdown!

I randomly got a spurt of energy while doing my before-sleep pinning and saw this recipe for the overnight crockpot apple oatmeal. I immediately got up and put it all in the crockpot, expecting to wake up to delicious smelling breakast.

Fail. All I could smell 6.5 hours later was a little bit of burnt something. It was over an hour less than what it recommended, but still the bottom and sides were burned.

I tried it anyway... and.. well... it was worse than the smell.

It was a spongey, chewy, tasteless glob. I couldn't deal, no matter how hungry I was. 

If you're going to make it, I'd do at least 3-4 cups of milk with 2-3 cups of water, and at least a tablespoon of cinnamon... and definitely don't cook it for the full 8-9 hours. Put that in the pot with two apples, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and two cups of oatmeal. 

Or... if you've made it in some delicious way, please spill your secrets!
