Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 7 hours
Servings 4


  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree not pie filling
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice mix
  • 2 - 3 tsp coconut sugar brown sugar may substitute
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • a dash of ground cloves optional, and if not contained in the pumpkin spice mix


  1. In a large bowl that fits into the liner of your slow cooker, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
  2. Set the bowl inside of the slow cooker, and fill the liner with water to halfway up the side of the bowl.
  3. Cover and bake the oatmeal on low overnight, 6-8 hours.
  4. Finish seasoning to taste with additional sugar and pumpkin spice mix, if desired.
  5. Serve topped with pumpkin seeds, milk, honey and fruit.

Recipe Notes

Cooking the oatmeal in a bowl inside the slow cooker will prevent pumpkin from burning on the sides.
Additional pumpkin spice mix and sugar can be added at the end of baking to taste, so feel free to go easy.
