Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats/Oatmeal for Slow Cooker

Total Time

This is my adaptation of a recipe a friend gave me. Use more or less milk and/or adjust spices and sugar to your taste. Makes 4 modest servings or 2 very hearty servings. My husband prefers much more sugar in his. Alternatively, you may bring to a rolling boil, then boil gently 10 minutes, reduce heat to low and simmer 30 or more minutes, or according to your oat package instructions & taste. Watch for boil over!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine oats, milk, water, salt and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a crock pot or slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low overnight or until thickened. If it still looks a bit watery, it will thicken more as it cools.
  3. Stir the remaining 1/8 tsp cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves into the pumpkin puree, then stir into oatmeal along with the brown sugar.
  4. Top with blueberries or other fruit, and additional brown sugar or cinnamon sugar if desired.
  5. Note: I'm not sure where my notes went (entered in "recipe description" in 'zaar) but this is the recipe as given to me. Definitely adjust spices & sugar to your taste. I use more than double the recommended spice amounts, and top with additional brown sugar!

Great starting point, just not sweet enough for my liking. I added double the pumpkin and spices, which upped the pumpkin flavor enough to make me quite happy. thanks for posting

I too found I needed a bit more brown sugar. It was still a bit bland but it makes a good starting point. I added extra pumpkin and about 3 times the spice load.
