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!

    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 :)

    Did you know that store bought honey is not technically honey as it is so heavily filtered that all the goodness that makes honey honey (mostly the pollen) and is technically honey flavored syrup. Try to find a local honey farm, usually at a local farmer’s market
