Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Find it on Pinterest

Cook's Note: It's FALL and there is nothing like warm oatmeal and anything pumpkin. And there is REALLY nothing like waking up to breakfast that is already made.  I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought I had to try it out. It was good, I just had to make a few tweaks to it! Throw this all in the crock pot RIGHT before you go to sleep and wake up to the aromas of pumpkin filling your house. This is something that is semi-healthy and the whole family can enjoy. This would also be a great breakfast on Thanksgiving morning because its not too filling and simple.

What You Will Need:

2 Cups of Steel Cut Oats (don't use any other kind, trust me!)
4 cups of Milk
1 can of Pumpkin Puree
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 Tbsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp vanilla extract


Be sure to spray the inside of your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Also, like I said in the ingredients list - you HAVE to use steel cut oats, otherwise - any other kind of oats (such as quick cooking or multigrain will get very soggy). Combine all ingredients in the crock pot and stir well. Let simmer overnight on low for 6-7 hours.

Serve with a great cup of coffee (with a little pumpkin spice coffee creamer in it) and some fresh fruit!
