Do you ever see a recipe on Pinterest and want to try it right then and there? That is what happened to me with this Crock Pot Apple Oatmeal. The recipe sounded amazing and I really wanted to try it. Thankfully we had everything I needed in the house. I figured it was a cold snowy night it would be perfect to wake up to warm Crock Pot Apple Oatmeal…..Hmmm if only that was how it turned out.
The recipe I saw on Pinterest included the following ingredients
2 sliced apples
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups of oatmeal
4cups of water
Super easy ingredients and really easy to put together. The recipe said to place the apples on the bottom of the crockpot and then layer the additional ingredients on top without stirring them. Cook overnight for 8-9 hours on low heat. I did all of this and fully expected to wake up to an amazing breakfast. The house smelled like apples and cinnamon and both John and I were excited to see how it turned out.
Well I am sad to say this was a total Pinterest Fail for me.
We woke up to find mush in the crock pot. I am not sure what happened but it was not good. The top of the oatmeal had a really odd film across it and some of the oatmeal burned to the sides. We decided to try a bite of it just to see how it tasted and well yuck. It tasted horrible. I am not sure what went wrong with this recipe but it turned out to be a total Pinterest Fail for me.
Have you ever made oatmeal in the crockpot? How did it turn out?
