Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Ingredients

As the temps start to drop, I love sending my kids off to school with a warm, cozy bowl of steel cut oats (the oats of my childhood!) Inspired by my love of fall, this pumpkin spice oatmeal recipe is made with whole milk, steel cut oats, flax seed meal, maple syrup, pure pumpkin and spices.

    Hi Liz!

    I don’t have a slow cooker. How can I make this on the stove? It sounds just so yummy!

    I tried this and it turned out amazing! However, the recipe said 6 hours and instructions said 8 on low. Do you think this is why the oats were burnt on the side and bottom of my crock pot?

      Sorry about that- it’s meant to be 8 hours on low as it’s an overnight type of recipe but if your cooker is burning them try 6 next time. :) Some are stronger than others I’ve learned!

    Bobs steel cut oats are a game changer for meal prep breakfasts! Oatmeal in the slow cooker is my fav and I can’t wait to try this pumpkin spice version!
