Everyone knows they should be eating oatmeal. But, not a lot of people do, because lets face it, it’s not exactly the most tasty this you could be eating in the morning. Thats where this recipe comes in. I adapted my version from this one here on Rachel Cooks.
If you like pumpkin pie, you are going to love my Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oatmeal. And it’s good for you!
Most recipes for steel cut oatmeal in a crock-pot call for it to be cooked on low for 6-8 hours. I found that the cooking time totally depends on your crock-pot. For example I got a new Rival Crock Pot for Christmas from my madre and it cooks hot. My recipe here for this oatmeal took only 3 hours on low. And it probably could have come out at 2:30 or 2:45. So be sure to monitor yours the first time you make it so that you don’t burn it or overcook it.
Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oatmeal in Slow Cooker
• 1cups steel cut oats
• 4 cups water
• 1 cup Light Soy Milk (or regular milk, almond milk, etc)
• 7.5 ounces of pumpkin puree (not pie filling) (This is ½ a regular 15 oz can)
• 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• ½ tablespoon pure vanilla extract
• ¼ cup packed brown sugar
1. Mix all ingredients in a crock pot and cook low 3 hours. Even though it looks like a lot of liquid, don’t worry, it will get nice and thick.
(Some people like to make this right before they go to bed and just put it on the “warm” setting and then it’s all ready when they get up. NOTE: I have not tried the cooking overnight method so cannot verify that will work.)
2. When ready to eat it, I added ¼ cup more of soy milk to the bowl and then microwaved it to make it a little thinner.
