Crockpot Pumpkin Oatmeal

Last weekend I had family in town, and I wanted to make a breakfast that was yummy, easy and vegan.  I  remembered that last fall a dear friend had made me delicious oatmeal in a crockpot, and I decided to take a stab at it.  When it came to the flavor, it was simple: pumpkin.  Not only because it’s fall and getting chilly, but also because I’m a white girl and I naturally love pumpkin treats (I also like yoga pants and brunch).

The recipe is from Peanut Butter and Peppers, and it is delicious pumpkin bliss.

Overnight Slow Cooker Pumpkin Oatmeal

1 cup Coach’s Oats or steel cut oats

1 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)

3 cups water

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground

1 tsp stevia (to taste), optional

1 pinch salt

Optional toppings: brown sugar, maple syrup, pumpkin seeds, raisins / craisins, slivered almonds

Instructions: In your crockpot, add all of your ingredients and stir. Set the your crockpot on low for 6 – 8 hours.

Notes:

  • If your crockpot runs hot, you can follow the instructions on the original post to use a bowl inside the crockpot.
  • When I did mine without a bowl, there was some stuck oatmeal but no burning.
  • My tiny crockpot was the perfect size.
  • There’s nothing better than waking up to pumpkin spice on a chilly fall morning!

My oatmeal turned out amazing and my family liked it too!  I topped it with raisins, sliced almonds and pumpkin seeds.  It was served with apple slices and vegan zucchini bread.

    This looks totally delish! I got rid of my crockpot, but perhaps I can recreate a version of it the good ol’ fashioned way on a stove top.

    Yes, I’m sure that would work too!

    I think my tiny little crock pot was a Black Friday deal a few years ago and was super cheap. It’s come in handy for parties a few times!
