Crockpot Pumpkin Oatmeal Recipe

Throw in the ingredients before bed and wake up to a house smelling like pumpkin!!  Delicious and hot right before work, you've GOT to try this crockpot pumpkin oatmeal recipe!!!!!!

I love the fall.  Although it was 90 degrees today, nothing says autumn than the leaves falling, the temperatures falling and the delicious smell of pumpkin.  We LOVE pumpkin in our home, and as they being to show up in stores, this is one of our favorite things to make.  Now I’m not a huge oatmeal fan, and I normally would not try and make oatmeal in a crockpot, but my wife and I are both super busy in the mornings!  This recipe offers the perfect balance of time and taste, and trust me it’s AMAZING.

This is a simple and delicious pumpkin oatmeal recipe.  I initially was a little worried about the oatmeal, but it held up well in the crockpot.  This is super simple, which is something I love about this recipe.  Literally, just throw all the ingredients into the crockpot and walk away, go to sleep, wake up to the comforting smell of pumpkin.  You get HOT FAST breakfast without having to worry about being late for work.  Yea, my kinda recipe.

If you love oatmeal and pumpkin, try this out and let me know what you think!

  1. What do you mean by “small can of pumpkin? How many ounces, please?

  2. I made this recipe this morning- it smelled so good, but when I looked inside the crock pot, all the edges were burned! The middle was yummy, though! I suppose I should have sprayed the pot with Pam or something before adding the ingredients.

  3. In regards to the edges burning, I saw a similar recipe where the blogger used a “double boiler” method – put the ingredients in a glass bowl, set that in the crock pot, & surround it with water. I have not done it myself yet.
    Using vanilla almond milk instead of milk, will cut back on the sugar in the difference of sugar between milk & the vanilla almond milk. Does that sound right? I’m not very experienced at this.

  4. Stephanie Ballentine says:

    I made this last night using the double boiler method and it was AMAZING! It tasted just like pumpkin pie filling!! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Do you stir it and what are chia seeds? Can you omit them? I have bran, flax and wheat germ in my steel cut oats.

    • Jenn,
      Chia seeds are full of omega 3′s and are very popular right now. You can definitely omit them. But if you have flaxseed, just replace the chia seeds with them. Same amount and everything. Good luck!

  6. So if I save the leftovers in the fridge will it still be good if I have to microwave it? I’m the only one in my family who will be eating this and I don’t want it to go to waste.

  7. A small can pumpkin? Is it a 15 oz can? That would be usefull info…

  8. Have we come up with what a small can of pumpkin is yet? Is it the 15 ounce can. PLEASE!!
    Most other recipes only call for 1 to 2 cups of pumpkin puree.

  9. This sounds delish! I’m definitely going to try this one…will try the “double boiler” method. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Yup, mine was totally burned and cripsy :( so disappointing! I’ll have to try it the other way I guess.

  11. Hi folks, how would you make this recipe if you don’t have a crock pot?

  12. In the past I have had issues with crockpot oatmeal getting burned. But have since made it with the crockpot on the warm setting. It’s perfect.

  13. Can I please ask why all your pumpkin recipes use canned pumpkin? I live in Australia and we eat fresh pumpkin…….we buy or grow it, pick it, and cook it……I am just curious?

  14. Size matters…as in what size slow cooker was used for the original recipe? Since every slow cooker cooks differently (some cook hotter than others) it is helpful to consider that when trying out a new recipe. I can’t wait to try it.
