Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Although the concept of this dessert sounds amazing...I can't seem to get the thought of mushy oatmeal stuffed into an apple. Doesn't the apple as well as the oatmeal get mushy at the bottom? I'm not sure if this is the route I'd go but I like the idea of baked apples in a slow cooker so maybe if you were to put big chunks of apple at the bottom and then layer the oat mixture on top, it would make an apple crisp type of dessert...that would be awesome with some vanilla ice cream melting over top. Yum!

Oops, typo...I can't seem to get the thought of mushy oatmeal stuffed into an apple out of my mind.

Hello! As long as you don't overcook it, the oatmeal shouldn't come out mushy. Enjoy!
