pumpkin pie slow cooker overnight oatmeal

Easy, festive, delicious, pumpkin pie…  for breakfast!

And no, not the ‘sneak-a-piece-of-leftover-pie-while-the-kids-aren’t-looking’ kind of breakfast.  A fuel-packed oatmeal that you can happily feed your family, with little prep the night before and no work in the morning!!

How good does that sound?!

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Slow Cooker Oatmeal | Sweet Anna's

As I sit here enjoying my second bowl today (and thinking about how happily all my kids ate their breakfast this morning), I am pretty confident that you will like this one.

Unless you don’t like pumpkin, of course.  Then you might as well not bother with this one, and instead make my original overnight steel-cut oatmeal or my eggnog slow cooker oatmeal!

    Just had to stop and say this was “amazing”. Stirred it together last night and the blend of flavors were perfect. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. It will fast become a favorite in our home. I love “pumpkin anything”.

      How do you freeze the oatmeal?

      • heather

        Once it’s cooled after cooking, spoon oatmeal into a muffin baking tin, cover and freeze. Then pop out the oatmeal muffins and store in a gallon size ziplock bag for easy single servings. Microwave to reheat.

          What a great tip Heather! Thanks for sharing! I usually freeze mine in individual portions in freezer safe containers. But I think I like your way better!! Trying that next time for sure!

    I was wondering if I could use the pumpkin that is already to go with the spices in it. instead of plain pumpkin then adding the spices?

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      I’m sorry I didn’t see this question! I won’t recommend it since I never use that kind, but feel free to try it (and let me know how it turns out!) :)

  • Hayley

    I made this last night and mine turned out super runny, I gave it a good stir a few times, waited for it to thicken, and still nothing. It looked like goop. I’m not sure what went wrong for me. :(

    • Stephanie

      Mine was pure liquid also. I happened to have a ton of plain instant oatmeal packets so I tore them all open and added them since I had three hungry kiddos looking at me lol Then it was really good. My crockpot is really old sometimes I think it’s too hot so maybe it overcooked the oats that were in there.

      • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

        Hayley and Stephanie! I’m so sorry your oatmeal didn’t turn out! I have made this so many times with exactly the same results… I can’t help but agree that maybe your slow cooker runs on a different temperature? Go as LOW as you can. (And maybe try again with a cup less liquid? If it ends up too thick, just stir in some milk/cream in the morning!)

    • Debbie Cameron

      I thought it looked like a lot of liquid and not enough oatmeal. When I try it I’m thinking 3 cups of oatmeal.

    Hi I was wondering if I can use quick oats with this recipe?

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      I don’t know about that! I am guessing it would overcook pretty quickly. I can’t say it would hurt to try if you’re determined!

  • Christi

    Well i heeded the warning of it being to liquid-y, and reduced the water by one cup, and also cheated a little by using half milk, half pumpkin spice creamer… Naughty I know! I also added just s few more oats because I prefer super thick oatmeal. We shall see!!

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      How did it turn out Christi? (If you remember? I have no idea how I missed some of these comments!!)

  • Ava Gunn Kinsey

    Someone made this for our MOPS meeting, and it was SO GOOD! I am not a pumpkin fan, but I REALLY liked it!

      Thanks for coming back here and letting me know, Ava! That means so much to me to hear!

    Could you use Almond milk instead of regular milk or half and half?

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      I haven’t tried that Lauren, but I’d love to hear how it turned out if you did!

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      Lauren – Yes! See Karyn’s comment!

  • Maria

    Can I use a regular can of pumpkin or does it have to be pumpkin puree?

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      As long as it’s not “Pumpkin Pie Mix” you should be fine!

    I just wanted to comment on how delicious this is! I haven’t made oatmeal before work since getting pregnant (27 wks now) – every minute I spend in bed sleeping is vital! So when I found this recipe I was pretty excited. I had all the ingredients on hand – minus the steel cut oats – so that was a nice bonus. After getting those (I got the Quaker brand), I tossed it all in the crockpot before heading to bed. I had it on low for about 8.5-8.75 hrs and gave it a good stir when I woke up. It was perfect! Even better – it tastes perfect! I followed the recipe exactly, but I only used a 1/2 cup of light brown sugar. Thanks for this great recipe that will also make life easy for me! :)

    I plan on making this for my coworkers and myself that work Sunday mornings, we share different things for breakfast since we all have to be there at 7 or 8 am. I look forward to making this and will report how it goes when we eat it. Looking forward to Sunday already!

    Have you made this the morning of using the InstantPot? Just curious how you might alter the recipe. :)

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      I haven’t, Julie! But what a great idea. I will think about playing with that! But remember you can use your instant pot as a slow cooker too. There is something so special about waking up to breakfast already done and the house smelling aMAZing!

  • Sue

    This is the 2nd time I have made this with the EXACT measurements the recipe calls for & both times my oatmeal has turned out a perfect consistency. In fact, I could actually be content to add cream or milk on top of it when reheating the left overs. I altered the recipe only minimally because of what I had in the house. I used evaporated milk for most of the milk part & used grated ginger instead of ginger spice (I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice). This is one of my favorite fall recipes. :)

    • http://arthomas.blogspot.com annaliseree

      I LOVE using evaporated milk in this (I just don’t usually advertise it because people think I’m odd!)… something so nostalgic about the flavor of evaporated milk! :) Thanks for sharing. I love hearing that you love it as much as I do!

  • Olivia

    mine was super runny ): too “pumpkin-y” too, maybe it should have had more sugar.

    My family doesn’t do pumpkin, but I’m sure this recipe will easily convert to sweet potato pie slow cooker overnight oatmeal.

  • Cheri

    I made this recipe overnight for a work potluck. I followed the recipe exactly, except due to the warnings of other reviewers, I added 1/2 cup extra steel cut oats, so it wouldn’t end up “soupy.” My mistake. Although the flavor was AMAZING, it turned out very (too) thick, so I added extra milk to thin it out, and it was perfect. The only thing that would put this dish over the top, would be to add toasted chopped pecans. Oh, and maybe a dollop of whipped cream :) I will make this often during the fall and winter! Thank you so much for the amazing recipe!

  • Eliza

    This was exactly the kind of recipe I was looking for! I followed the measurements and directions exactly and it turned out perfect after a stir. I even ended up adding extra milk and cream to our bowls. So, don’t do any less liquid as some reviewers suggest! The flavor was perfect as well. I topped mine with chopped pecans and whipped cream–delicious and very filling!
