Slow Cooker Pumpkin Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a staple breakfast at my house.  I eat it every day before school and I have posted a lot of different recipes for it on here such as my Strawberries and Cream Steel Cut Oatmeal, Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Oatmeal, and Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal! I love how filling it is and that it is so customizable! My favorite one I have made thus far has definitely been this Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal! It really did taste just like a slice of pumpkin pie combined with oatmeal!

I like to make a batch of this crockpot oatmeal ahead of time and heat it up in the morning with a bit of brown sugar and chopped pecans.  This recipe ended up being seven whole breakfasts for me so it’s a great option if you are feeding a crowd.

Something I love about this recipe is that it is made right in a crock pot.  All I had to go was pop in all of the ingredients and then stirred it on occasion just to see how it was doing.  When I made this, I ended up going over to check on it after two hours and realized my slow cooker was not on…. whoops! That was a little bit of an accident but it ended up working out anyway!

  • This recipe can either be cooked on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 5-6.  Make sure to plan accordingly!
  • When reheating, add a bit of milk to it! The oatmeal heats up much better that way!
  • While the oatmeal is cooking, give it a stir every once in a while to help make sure none is getting stuck to the bottom of the slow cooker!
