I really want this for breakfast, but how do you manage to have this for breakfast when it needs 4-6 hours to cook? What am I missing??

Does the banana get mixed in at the end? The recipe doesn’t say what to do with it after it is mashed. Also, did you use walnuts or almonds- both are mentioned in the recipe but it looks like an error.

Hi – My crockpot is a larger one. Looking at the measurements of the ingredients, it sounds like it could be made in a smaller crockpot. Will I need to adjust my cooking time?

Hi … can you elaborate on step 4. I don’t see reference to walnuts, or a sugar/walnut mixture in the ingredients list. Thanks!!

This sounds delish! I need a dish like this for lots of people. Are there modifications if I double or triple the recipe?
