  • 1 cups - steel cut oats
  • 15 ounces - solid packed pumpkin (NOT THE MIX)
  • 1 1/2 cups - milk (we use almond milk)
  • 1 cups - water
  • 1 teaspoons - cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons - ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoons - nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoons - ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoons - salt
  • 2 teaspoons - vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cups - Truvia or 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoons - Greek yogurt , optional
  • 1 teaspoons - cinnamon “sugar” on top or maple syrup, optional
  • Directions:

    Find a BAKING DISH that is small enough to nestle down inside of your crock pot so that you can create a water-bath.

    Grease dish.

    Combine all ingredients in dish. Stir.

    Place down inside crock.

    Fill crock with water until water comes up the side of the nestled bowl until it’s ¾ the way up the dish.

    Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

    You’ll just scoop it right out of the bowl. It’s nice and done and delicious – like a very moist baked oatmeal. Add yogurt and cinnamon sugar to top.

    Brief Description

    from Stacy Makes Cents:

    This recipe is so easy you’ll smack yourself for not making it sooner. Mix it up, put it in the crock water-bath, turn on the crock and go to bed. Leave it for 8 hours…6 would probably work too, but girl – you need more than 6 hours of sleep.

    Main Ingredient:

    oatmeal and pumpkin

    Cook Time: 8 hour(s)


    You need a baking dish that will fit down inside your crock. It gives room around the edges for adding water. I use a 6 quart crock and the bowl is a 10-cup size. Make sure it’s a BAKING DISH. An exploded, glass shard bowl of oatmeal would not be fun to wake up to.

    You want steel-cut oatmeal for this one. I’ve tried using rolled oats in the crock overnight and it’s just yucky.

    You can mix everything directly in your bowl in the crock.
    Optional: Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt and cinnamon sugar or dab of maple syrup.
