Crock-Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

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!
