Crock-Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

3 Comments

You may have picked up on this at some point, but pumpkin is possibly my most favorite flavor. It’s good in coffee, it’s great for dessert, and I recently figured out that it’s perfect for breakfast, too! This recipe is easy-peasy and absolutely delicious! The best part is that you can set it before you go to bed and have warm, fall-flavored oatmeal by breakfast. It’s a win all around!

Crock-Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

  • 2 c. steel cut oats- it’s important to use steel cut oats. Don’t use rolled or quick oats- they will get mushy!
  • 4 c. liquid- you can use milk, water, apple juice, almond milk, coconut milk- whatever suits your fancy (I used 2 c. milk + 2 c. apple juice)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 c. honey
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  1. Begin by spraying your crock-pot with non-stick cooking spray (This is important! You’ll be chiseling oatmeal off of your crock-pot for days if you forget…)
  2. Add all ingredients to your crock-pot. Stir to combine.
  3. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Serve plain, with milk, or with a dollop of yogurt.
  4. ENJOY!

  1. I’ve been loving all of your crock pot recipes! I think I have pinned all of them actually…but I actually just returned my crock pot because I decided I wasn’t happy with it. It didn’t have a timer on it so if I was gone for over 8 hours, stuff would burn. Do you like yours? Or do you have any suggestions of things I should look for in my new one?

    • Hi Cassie! My crock-pot is one of the best tools in my kitchen! I would definitely recommend geting one with a timer. My old one didn’t and I had the same problem of things cooking too long. I recently got my 6 qt. oval one at Costco for $40ish and LOVE it (it’s this one: http://goo.gl/DVsza). I used to have an old school 3 qt. round. one. I replaced it with the oval one mostly because I wanted to be able to cook whole chickens in it. It’s been such a good investment! Hope this is helpful :)
